Actor Matt Damon is reportedly buying the most expensive condo in the borough, a $16.645-million penthouse in Brooklyn Heights.

The “Good Will Hunting” star is in contract to purchase the pad at luxury residential complex The Standish on Columbia Heights between Clark and Pierrepont streets, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The swanky six-bedroom apartment sits at the very top of the former Standish Arms Hotel, a 12-story Beaux-Arts building once owned by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. In addition to ample space, the 1903 structure’s upper floors — where Damon’s alleged pad is located — also enjoy unobstructed views of the distant isle of Manhattan.

The religious organization sold the hotel in 2007 to Taurus Investment Holdings, which turned it into a 94-unit rental complex. That firm sold it to developers DDG and Westbrook Partners in 2014, who converted it into luxury condos.

This isn’t Damon’s first flirtation with Brooklyn Heights — he reportedly scoped out a $40-million mansion on Pierrepont Place last September, one month after his kids were rejected from enrolling at the nabe’s exclusive St. Ann’s School.

Paying exorbitant and usurious prices for a Brooklyn condo? How original. He must think from a script.
