Well it looks like someone “umbrella” is in the marking as well. That’s right, famous singer Rihanna is putting her New York City apartment up for rental. The penthouse duplex that the pop star turned fashion and beauty mogul has been renting in Soho/Nolita is now on the market.
The space itself is a 4,660 square foot four bedroom, three and a half bath property across two floors, with an expansive wraparound terrace that adds another 2,400 square feet.
Rihanna moved into the 11th and 12th floor apartment at 129 Lafayette Street back in 2013, and was paying a cool $39,000 a month for it. Even stars balk at rent increases, because the most recent monthly fee is reported at $50,000 (could you imagine getting a $2,750 per month rent hike every year?).
The building, which formerly contained a bookbinder and printing houses, was built in 1911 and converted to condos in 2004, according to the New York Post. The penthouse unit is owned by celebrity fashion photographer Antoine Verglas, who has shot the stunning visages of Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, and Cindy Crawford.
It is said that the estimated rental price for this fabulous apartment goes around $16.95 million. It is currently one of the top listed properties in New York and so hopefully someone is able to purchase it before it goes out of the market. We can look at the floor plans of how spacious is this apartment.
