In Sept. 2004, Jay Z closed a two-year-long deal on the seventh floor of this converted 1929 brick warehouse building on Hudson Street. The raw space covers 8,000 square feet with 3,000 square feet of outdoor terraces. This deal rounded off the rapper’s apartment hunt, which included a couple of other downtown properties. In 2008, word spread that Beyonce and Jay Z were getting married right in this building. The alleged nuptials threw the paparazzi into a frenzy, but nothing ended up happening that day.
