    Travis Kalanick, co-founder of ride-hailing giant Uber who was pushed out as chief executive by investors last year, has inked a deal to buy a glamorous New York City penthouse for about $36.4 million, according to people familiar with the deal.

    The Soho penthouse is located in an under-construction building on Broome Street, in a building designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Italian architect Renzo Piano. It was on the market for $40.5 million, The Wall Street Journal reported in April.

    The four-bedroom apartment measures 6,655 square feet and will have a private elevator that opens into the unit, floor-to-ceiling windows and two terraces leading from the entertaining spaces. It also will have a rooftop terrace with a private 20-foot heated outdoor pool and an outdoor kitchen.

    The building, which is slated to be completed by the end of the year, will include a private covered porte-cochere with a mechanical parking system that moves cars into a garage. There will also be a fitness center and a 55-foot pool.

    Italian real-estate firm Bizzi & Partners Development is developing the project in partnership with Aronov Development and Halpern Real Estate Ventures. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is leading sales at the building.

    He bought the unit that Bill Cosby had to sell in order to pay his attorneys. Cosby’s little black book was included in the purchase.

    Built by the sucker investors, really. Since they don't get enough money from the pax to pay for the drivers we know it's the investors that pay his salary, not drivers.

    He sure did cash in a golden ticket considering he should’ve faced a grand jury for a multitude of reasons.
