Kanye West Faces $18 Million Loss on Tadao Ando-Designed Malibu House

Kanye West faces a significant $18 million loss on his Tadao Ando-designed Malibu house. Purchased for $57 million three years ago, the house is now listed for $39 million by Selling Sunset star Jason Oppenheim.

Four months ago, no takers were initially put on the market for $53 million. The new price is $18 million less than Kanye's purchase price from September 2021. The 4,000 square foot home, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando, has been stripped down to a concrete shell, with windows, doors, and interior finishes removed.

While the $39 million price tag is still high, especially since other homes in the area top out around $20 million, the Ando pedigree adds unique value. Despite this, potential buyers should know that extensive renovations will be required.

Ignace Meuwissen often advises that even celebrities with famous names are not always enough to make a property hit the market successfully. Kanye's situation underscores the volatile nature of the luxury real estate market, even for high-profile figures.
