Beyoncé has been able to dominate airwaves and pop culture for years now, in no small part because of Jim Sabey, her marketing genius and manager.

But Sabey, the former head of worldwide marketing for Beyoncé’s management company, Parkwood Entertainment, looks to be moving on from at least one thing: his Tribeca co-op apartment. He’s listed the two-bedroom for $3.5 million.

The chic, minimalist 1,600-square-foot corner apartment is filled with light and boasts some high-tech amenities. Bonus: Some of Beyoncé’s greatest hits were allegedly written here, establishing this apartment’s own claim to fame.

It’s listed with Deborah V. Hughes and Diane D’Ambrosio of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.


The Tribeca apartment, in a 1915 co-op with 14 units in total, has a spacious terrace for taking in some sun.

Inside, wide windows let in plenty of light, but there are also shades that can be brought down on every window with the use of an app.

The master bathroom has lighting designed by Mariah Carey’s Grammy-winning stage-lighting designer in the 2000s. The architecture itself is worth about $100,000, according to Sabey.

And the guest bathroom includes a “super-featured” toilet worth as much as $10,000.

All the lighting, in fact, is high-tech: The lamps can be adjusted from anywhere in the world with an app.

The deadbolt can also be controlled from afar if security is a priority. Sabey said that “songs of a generation were written” at a table in the apartment.

The sink is an 1897 original farmhouse basin, and the counters are Italian soapstone. But the neighborhood is also flush with chic restaurants, like the nearby sushi hotspot Nobu.

At $3.5 million, this apartment doesn’t come cheap, but it might be an inspiring place to rest your head.
