Touted by the brokerbabble as "NYC's most incredible, unique rental property," and boasting the hands-down best celeb name-dropper of all time, this majestic Soho loft space is on the rental market for a whopping $80K a month. In the recent past the place has been rented out mainly for events, photo shoots, and music videos—devoted Beyoncé worshippers will obviously recognize the spot as the locale from her "Halo" video—and about two years ago the place was renting as a full-time residence for $100K a month, earning a spot on NYC's priciest rental list. Still, now the former Con Ed switching station (yes, really) is back with a bevy of newer, shinier listing photos that show off the 13,000-square-foot beauty's 29-foot ceilinged living room (now featuring a shockingly purple couch), gorgeous book-lined lofted library, and, duh, private indoor pool. There's also three bedrooms and three oversized bathrooms, but really, the Beyoncé pedigree is kind of the most valuable feature. Right? Right. Anyway, do have a look, below.
Oh, and here's what the place looks like with Beyoncé in it:
