Actor-director-producer Vincent Gallo has listed his penthouse in downtown L.A. for sale at $2.599 million.
Once leased to actor Nicolas Cage, the four-level loft has an open floor plan, exposed brick walls, floating-style staircases, inch-thick maple floors and an in-unit elevator. There are two bedrooms and 21/2 bathrooms in the 4,300-square-foot space. Three outdoor and rooftop living areas, including a movie theater, have city views and add 3,100 square feet of space.
The penthouse sits atop what was once the West Coast headquarters of the National Biscuit Co. The seven-story factory was built in 1925. Linear City renovated of the former Nabisco Bakery in 2007 into 104 live-work lofts. The complex is a Los Angeles Historical-Cultural Monument, which allows for reduced property taxes under the Mills Act. Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a 75-foot-long saline swimming pool and a gym.
Gallo, 50, is also a singer and songwriter. He starred in such independent films as "Essential Killing" (2010) and "Tetro" (2009) and will star in the upcoming movie "The Legend of Kaspar Hauser."
Public records show Gallo bought the property in 2009 for $2.34 million.
