After the recent diss from Nicki Minaj who called him a ‘clown’ after instructing her Dj to cut the monster track that was playing during the recent Essence Festival, it seems that issues with Kanye West are not about to flip to the positive. It is now emerging that the rapper’s Malibu beachfront property is abandoned and incomplete with just a tarp showing signs of a contractor on site.
Kanye paid $57.3 million for it
Kanye acquired the property for $57.3 million after negotiating the price down from $75 million. Renovation works have been ongoing since last year but works seem to have stalled.
The property consists of a 3-level residential building with an area of 3,665 square feet on a 5,700 square feet lot. So far, the structure has gobbled up 12 pylons driven 60 feet underground, 200 tons of steel reinforcement, and 200 tons of poured concrete.
Stalking Kim Kardashian
Kanye West is accused of stalking Kim Kardashian on various occasions. The fact that the new mansion is 30 minutes’ drive from their former couple’s Hidden Hills tells a lot.
On Father’s Day, Kim Kardashian posted on her Instagram that her ex was the best dad to their kids. Hence, the property’s location is convenient for co-parenting that seems to be heading in the right direction.
The property sits on concrete stilts on of the most pristine beaches in America. The lead project architect is Tadao Ando who has designed only a handful of properties in the country. Marmol Radziner, a collaborating design firm, defines the property as minimalist yet warm as illustrated by the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the ocean.
The fact that it overlooks the oceans and stands on a beach makes it a unique property. Although the property lacks a yard, it has sufficient car parking space on its front and the beach could support all the parties that the artist likes to host.
