Matt Damon in contract for record-breaking $16.6M Brooklyn penthouse

Two years after earning an Oscar nomination for his work in ‘The Martian,’ Matt Damon is once again set to become a stranger in a strange new land.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the 46-year-old actor and his wife Luciana are preparing to make the move to Brooklyn, with Damon having entered into contract for the penthouse apartment at The Standish.

That luxury building is located in the tony Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, whose residents include Mary Louise Parker, Michael Shannon, Lena Dunham, Paul Giamatti and artist Matthew Barney.

It is not known how much Damon offered for the apartment, but the asking price for the six-bedroom pad was $16.665million.
