One down, four to go. Box-office star Johnny Depp has sold one of his penthouses at the Eastern Columbia Building in downtown Los Angeles for $2.545 million.

The two-bedroom, three-bathroom unit was part of a five-penthouse collection in the Art Deco structure that Depp put up for sale last month for $12.78 million. The remaining four units remain for sale collectively or individually, although their prices were not made public.


Depp acquired the penthouses in 2007 and kept the units mostly separate, with only select ones connecting on the upper level. Totaling a combined 11,500 square feet of space, the loft-style spaces were designed to function as individual rooms, each serving a particular purpose.

The unit that sold has a vintage bar, a galley-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a private terrace. Steel-paned windows take in views of the Orpheum Theatre.

Kevin Dees of Partners Trust represented the actor in the sale and holds the other listings.

Depp, 53, has scores of film credits, including “Edward Scissorhands,” “Donnie Brasco” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films. He gained recognition among television viewers in the 1980s series “21 Jump Street.”

More recently, the actor starred in the fantasy flick “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” He will reprise his role as Capt. Jack Sparrow next year in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell.”
