Pharrell Williams Finally Sells His Toy-Filled, Domed Penthouse at the Bristol Tower for $9.25 Million
After three and a half years on the market, broker Dora Puig of Luxe Living Realty has finally sold singer Pharrell Williams’ incredible Brickell Avenue penthouse, at the Bristol Tower, for $9.25 million. Full disclosure: Miami Condo Investments is under the umbrella of Luxe Living, so go boss! We’re proud of our own, yo. The Journal just broke the story. The ten thousand square foot pad takes up the entire top of the building, with an incredible triple-height living space under the building’s massive dome. Mr. Williams had it artfully decorated with toys galore, from his many projects including Minions, and things he loved, with an obviously personal touch. It includes a home theater, five bedrooms, and a rooftop pool.
The unique design of the whole condo was obviously personal too, which is undoubtedly one reason why it took so long to sell. And yes, Pharrell did take a financial hit on the place, having purchased it for $12.525 million at the height of the last real estate bubble. But Dora did it! After an original ask of $16.8 million under another broker, a price that Curbed expressed skepticism about when I was there (Dora originally listed it for $10.9), and multiple price cuts, she clinched the sale.
