Actor LEONARDO DiCaprio is throwing his financial support behind developers of an eco-friendly apartment complex in New York by becoming an investor.

The Great Gatsby star has been searching for a home in the city for several months and recently purchased a multi-million dollar apartment in the Delos Living complex.

DICaprio tells the New York Post, "Delos creates innovative building designs that both enhance human health and improve the environment."

The environmental activist will also join health guru Deepak Chopra on the board of advisers and Paul and Peter Delos have committed to building 40 homes in Haiti through former U.S. President Bill Clinton's foundation for every unit they sell.
