Musician and producer Pharrell Williams just sold his Miami showplace for $9.25 million after several years on and off the market. In 2007, he bought it at the height of Miami boom for $12.525 million. (That’s a big loss, even if you’re rich.) He first put it on the market in 2012 for $16.8 million and it saw several price reductions before it was dropped to $10.999 million. It was taken off the market for much last year while the building was undergoing renovations.
At 9,000 square feet, the five-bedroom 40th floor penthouse is located Bristol Tower in Brickell. With 360-degree views, the circular living room has 30-foot ceilings and Williams capitalized on the layout and wall space to exhibit his extensive art collection, including work by Takashi Murakami, Keith Haring, KAWS and Andy Warhol. Williams told W magazine in 2011,
“It’s like living in a very interesting fishbowl, but since no one can see up here, it’s like a fishbowl with a limo tint.”
The staircase leads up to billiards room and a gym, and a mezzanine under the dome. It also has 5,000 square feet of outdoor spaces on three levels, including a jaw-dropping outdoor pool area.
