We've done some solid reporting on the jaw-dropping pads where rappers and pop stars chose to film their music videos, from modern-day castles
to glass-walled penthouses
. No doubt about it, there's something about adding a little star power to an already exceptional home that makes it that much more exciting.
So when we got the chance to check out the loft that Beyonce chose to feature in the music video for her Grammy-winning song "Halo,"
we jumped all over it. Ceilings 25 feet high, a roof deck and a private indoor swimming pool? Uh, yes please. Later, we discovered the structure actually had way more going for it than just luxury amenities and star-studded associations -- built in the 1890s, it had housed one of New York's very first power stations!
Peek into the loft yourself.
Like what you see? Beyonce's "Halo" loft can be rented for $100,000 a month.
