After doubling down on his French village earlier this year, Johnny Depp is ready to part with another piece of his exotic real estate portfolio up for sale. The actor-producer-musician has listed his collection of residences atop the Eastern Columbia Building in downtown Los Angeles for sale at $12.78 million.

Depp’s properties include five multi-floor penthouses with the Art Deco building, originally designed by Claud Beelman and modernized in 2007. The downtown landmark is distinguished by its exterior of teal terra cotta and gold leaf tile and a four-sided clock tower that tops the 1930s structure.


Kept largely separate during the actor’s ownership, the residences include multiple kitchens, living areas and lofted spaces decorated in a colorful, bohemian style. Multiple terraces and steel-paned windows take in sweeping downtown views.

The units, which total about 11,500 square feet of living space, can also be purchased individually.

The 53-year-old actor has been in sell-mode as of late, but is hardly looking to sell short. Earlier this year, Depp put his compound in Plan de la Tour, France, back on the market for around $55 million — double what he asked for the 47-acre Provencal village a year ago.

Known for his offbeat roles, Depp has starred in more than 50 major motion pictures, including “Edward Scissorhands,” “Benny and Joon” and “Donnie Brasco.” He gained recognition among television viewers in the 1980s series “21 Jump Street.”

More recently, the actor starred in the film “Alice Through the Looking Glass.”

Kevin Dees and Nick Segal of Partners Trust hold the listing at the Eastern Columbia Building.
