Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, and the Faena House tower
KimYe have bought into the 18-story luxury beachfront tower Faena House, designed by Norman Foster and home to masters of the universe including Goldman Sachs chairman Lloyd Blankfein, hedge-fund billionaire Ken Griffin and Faena co-developer Len Blavatnik.
While reps for Kim and Kanye didn’t comment, sources said KimYe purchased unit 5A, the condo of Alex Blavatnik, the brother of energy billionaire Len, for about $14 million.
The four-bedroom, 5 ½-bath, 4,700-square-foot apartment with a wraparound terrace at 3325 Collins Ave. had originally been listed for $15.5 million.
In late 2017, Alex sold his other Faena House condo, unit 6A, for $13 million to an unknown buyer.
The building has all the amenities desired by the superrich: a private gym, spa, pool, concierge and underground parking.
Citadel founder Griffin famously paid a Miami record of $60 million for two Faena penthouse units, which boast a pool and 360-degree terraces — and then never moved in.
The source said, “Kim and Kanye have been spotted viewing the property in the last month, and they are now in contract to buy it for $14 million. The sale is expected to close in January.”
The couple, whose main residence is a sprawling mansion in Hidden Hills, Calif., has long-standing ties to Miami Beach, the original location for the Kardashians’ Dash store.
Kanye is a regular at December’s annual Art Basel Miami Beach, and the rapper is said to be down with Faena’s links to the artistic and cultural community.
Argentine Faena mastermind Alan Faena told New York magazine in 2016 of the design of the property, which also includes a five-star hotel and a Rem Koolhaas-designed arts center: “From the macro to the ‘meekro,’ the level of love and detail is the same. It’s not just design. It’s based on truth, on a story.”
