The Weeknd Purchases Westwood Penthouse

One of most expensive condos ever purchase in LA

By Chad Winthrop

In one of the most expensive condo sales in Los Angeles history, Abel Tesfaye, the singer-songwriter more commonly known as The Weeknd, has purchased one of the last penthouses in the Beverly West, the boutique condominium in Westwood.

The singer paid $21 million for the condo, which comes out to $2,555 a square foot for the residence which takes up the entire 18th floor of Beverly West. This ties the record for a condo purchase in Los Angeles this year. In June real estate developer Richard Lewis bought another unit in Beverly West for the same price. The highest price ever paid for a condo in Los Angeles is $35 million, by Candy Spelling for a two-story penthouse at the Century building in Century City.

The Weeknd’s new penthouse is known as the “Mogul” and features a dark, masculine palette of navy blue along with walnut wood paneling. In addition, the 8,215-square-foot condo includes a designer kitchen, imported wide-plank oak floors, direct elevator access and walls of floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views all around.

The Beverly West building, developed by Emaar Properties, a United Arab Emirates real estate firm, is comprised of 35 units and includes a 24-hour concierge, gym, saltwater swimming pool and rooftop helipad.
