New York City is a huge draw from a cultural perspective alone, and that’s perhaps why lyrical genius Kendrick Lamar reportedly bought a penthouse there.
According to the New York Post, the former TDE artist is buying a penthouse at the Pierhouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park. He has recently been spotted on various trips to several luxury Brooklyn condominiums, including the Quay Tower in Brooklyn Heights and the Olympia in Dumbo. The condos are all priced at $10 million.
The penthouse he reportedly bought is located on Furman St. Y. According to one source, the price for the penthouse was $8.99 million, according to the Post.
The three-story home features four bedrooms, a study, and nearly 2,000 square feet of outdoor space on two levels, including a private rooftop terrace overlooking the East River and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The building has several amenities: a concierge, exercise facilities, a residents’ lounge, bicycle storage and on-site parking. Residents also have access to the outdoor area at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, which features a rooftop pool and bar.
Architectural Digest reports that several notable celebrities have stayed at the Pierhouse. Actors Matt Damon and Amy Schumer already own condos, while British artist Ed Sheeran is reportedly renting an apartment there for $36,000 a month.
The rapper should be able to afford it. Earlier this year it was reported that Lamar Tour 2022, “The Big Steppers became the highest-grossing tour by a hip-hop artist, surpassing Drake’s Aubrey & the Three Migos tour.
Touring Data reported that The Big Steppers tour, produced by Live Nation, had 73 shows across the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Total revenue was $110,886,026 after selling 929,056 tickets.
Although Lamar is said to have made the purchase, he is still based in California, where he lives with his fiancé Whitney Alford and their little son and little daughter.
