Lower Manhattan has a new priciest rental listing. A trophy mansion once owned by hedge fund manager and George Soros protégé Mark Sonnino has hit the market as a rental, asking $135,000 a month.

The Tribeca property at 144 Duane Street, which comprises a massive triplex penthouse, several guest apartments and a basement gym and basketball court, last traded for $43 million in 2013 to An Unidentified Buyer Affiliated With The Entity Duane Street LLC.

Yoko Sanada of Douglas Elliman declined to comment on the identity of her client, saying only that he or she was currently living overseas. Andrew Hayes, a Stamford, Conn.-based attorney and business manager, represented the owner.

“The property is perfect for a celebrity or someone who needs privacy,” Sanada said. “They’re able to have their own space and for their staff to have a place to stay, as well.”

Built in 1862, the 42-foot-wide limestone building, which was originally designed as a department store, comprises 30,000 square feet, with ceiling heights ranging from 12 feet to 25 feet. It has a total eight bedrooms and 13.5 bathrooms.

The listing is the most expensive currently available Downtown. Uptown, more expensive units are currently available at the Pierre, Waldorf Astoria and Carlyle hotels as well as at One57 on Billionaires’ Row.
