Isn’t it just like an award-winning director to know how to pick the perfect vehicle to breathe life into a compelling story?

We bring you David Fincher, the Oscar-nominated and Emmy-award-winning director of “Gone Girl” and “House of Cards” fame, and the superlative condo he recently bought in Tribeca at one of the neighborhood’s most enduring, but made-over stars: 7 Harrison Street.

According to Variety, Fincher was the buyer through a trust for a 2,100-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom unit at 7 Harrison that had been last listed for $5.6 million. The unit features a private elevator entrance and an expansive, 32-foot long living/dining room with two exposures.

The turn-of-the-century building is a stately fixture in lower Manhattan but re-imagined by Architectural Digest 100 architect Steven Harris. Fincher’s unit overlooks historic Staple Street and sports southern exposures. There are only 12 units in this prestigious condo building, which eliminates a lot of the commotion that so many big-wigs are seeking in their Big Apple accommodations.

Your Mama” at Variety also points out that Fincher is not the only Hollywood film type who has set up shop at Seven Harrison. Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh paid almost $8.35 million for the building’s 3,100-square-foot duplex maisonette.
