Kanye West’s Former N.Y. Condo Comes Up for Sale

Variety // Sep 25, 2019

The longtime former New York City pied-à-terre bachelor pad of rapper-turned-fashion designer and pop culture provocateur Kanye West has popped up for sale with an asking price of $4.7 million. West acquired the two fourth-floor units that comprise the house-sized Soho condo more than a dozen years ago in two transactions that totaled $3.14 million. He hired vaunted Italian minimalist architect Claudio Silvestrin to combine and radically transform the adjoining apartments into a just over 2,400-square-foot refuge of monochromatic ultra-minimalism that overlooks one of downtown’s busiest crosstown thoroughfares. The redesigned one-bedroom and 1.5-bathroom condo, sold to a partner at a private equity firm in a clandestine, May 2018 off-market deal valued at $3 million, is now listed with CORE broker Emily Beare; the unit is staged by ASH NYC.

A sinuous hallway lined with cleverly disguised storage cabinets hidden behind full-height panels leads to a window-lined corner living/dining room with 10-foot ceilings and molding-free, gallery-white walls. Gleaming, polished French limestone floors reflect the sunlight that pours in through more than a dozen oversize windows, providing a cinematic city view. Casually open to the dining area, the compact, high-style kitchen features top-end designer appliances, bespoke pear wood cabinetry and a massive stone island with integrated snack counter. The spacious master suite incorporates a dressing hallway lined with full-height wardrobes as well as a bathroom with radiant-heated floor and a huge stone island that integrates a sink and bathtub. Other notable features include a comprehensive home automation system, in-unit laundry facilities and two private storage units in the basement.
