When you think about Celebrity homes, most of us familiar with the Los Angeles area think Beverly hills 90210, yet there is one A-lister who has always enjoyed having his home in downtown Los Angeles, and mind you – he bought his home long before the recent revitalization with the downtown LA area. We find it fitting that Johnny Depp keeps his home amongst the normal people.

The home resides in the famous Eastern Columbia Building, also known as the Eastern Columbia Lofts. It is a thirteen-story Claud Beelman designed Art Deco building located at 849 S.
