Following $70M Upgrade in L.A., The Weeknd Lists Luxe Penthouse for $22.5M

Last August when contemporary R&B innovator The Weeknd signed on the line that is dotted and, to the stratospheric tune of $70 million, took ownership of a 33,000 sq. ft. mansion in Bel-Air. The Mediterranean-style house spans three levels, and sits kingly in the midst of high-dollar SoCal accoutrements and within a jungly privacy buffer.

The purchase seems to have rendered the singer’s other notable property in town — a penthouse in Westwood he picked up in 2019 for $21 million — as redundant. That residence, an 8,000 sq. ft. mansion in the sky, appeared on the open market recently with an asking price of $22.5 million.

The unit is a full-floor property in the Beverly West building; as one of the crowning presences in the building, it has been titled The Mogul; the other penthouses in the building are named The Producer, The Entertainer, The Collector, and The Musician.

The four-bedroom unit’s interiors are atmospheric and unapologetically flashy. Its grand expressions of expense merge with the jetliner L.A. and ocean views and LED accent lighting to create a living style that is extremely indulgent and very satisfying. It features a spacious master suite.

The Weeknd — born Abel Tesfaye — has also owned a home in Hidden Hills. Last spring, he sold that property, a contemporary farmhouse with 12,500 sq. ft. of interiors, to Madonna. The property changed hands for $19.3 million.

The Weeknd released his fifth studio album, Dawn FM, yesterday. He’s scheduled to embark on an all-stadium world tour in support of the album and the one before, too; that one, titled After Hours, was released in 2020 and reached the top of the Billboard 200 chart. The After Hours til Dawn Stadium Tour begins in the summer.
