See inside the $36 million NYC penthouse Uber founder Travis Kalanick just purchased, complete with a private rooftop pool and automated parking garage (UBER)

Some of Travis Kalanick's darkest moments are being laid out in public view for the first time this month, but the new book isn't keeping Uber's ousted founder down.

The 43-year-old purchased a posh duplex penthouse atop a new luxury building in New York City last month for a cool $36.5 million, the New York Times first reported. It was the most expensive real estate purchase in the month of August in the city, the paper said.

Located on Broome Street in Manhattan's fashionable SoHo neighborhood, the building was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Italian "starchitect" Renzo Piano, and the glass facade bears resemblance to his last New York project, the Whitney Museum of American Art.

According to sale documents, the condo was purchased through an LLC called "377 Holdings," of which the Times reports a former Uber employee Tara Dhingra is also a director.

Kalanick's neighbors at the still half-empty building will include Novak Djokovic who in 2017 purchased two units in the building for an undisclosed amount, the Wall Street Journal reported at the time.
