That’s what a Brooklyn Bridge Park security guard is saying. The luxury condo building Pierhouse, which is located in the Brooklyn Heights park, has become notorious for the controversy surrounding its height, but now the conversation has turned to its potentially famous new residents, as the guard let the news slip to a long-time local who then spilled the beans to everyone at a community meeting.
As of last month, 78 of the building’s 106 units were in contract, ranging from $2.5 million to $10.5 million. Assuming Bey and Jay went for the most expensive option, they’d be getting a five-bedroom penthouse with a private roof terrace and all the environmentally-conscious amenities for which the development is known. As for the validity of the claim, a PR rep for Pierhouse is leaving it open: “I wish that I could confirm that Jay-Z and Beyonce had bought at Pierhouse but I cannot confirm that. You can publish it as a rumor,” she said. Rumor or not, it wouldn’t be surprising if the couple made their way back to Brooklyn, Jay-Z’s home town. They currently own a $6.85 million penthouse at 195 Hudson Street in Tribeca (where they famously married in 2008) and are reportedly renting a $150,000/month mansion in LA’s Holmby Hills.
