Kanye West’s nearly $60 million Malibu construction project is far from done.

The 45-year-old performer previously purchased the beachfront property in 2021 and began renovating it for personal use ever since then.

However, new images reveal that the updates to the planned residence are nowhere near completion, with a tarp covering the gutted property and a table and desk sitting on the upper levels of the home.

West’s house was designed by architect Tadao Ando, ​​and according to Dirtthe rapper first encountered his work during a visit to the art island of Naoshima, on which it is prominently featured.

The planned residence is only one of a handful that the Pritzker Prize-winning figure has designed in the United States.

The 3,665 square feet house, which sits on a 5,672 lot, was planned to have a total of 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

The residence was initially offered up for an outstanding $75 million, although West negotiated it down to $57.3 million.

The property last changed hands in 2003, when it was purchased for $1.9 million by financier Richard Sachs, who proceeded to heavily renovate the structure.

According to the media outlet, the residence required ‘1,200 tons of poured concrete, 200 tons of steel reinforcement and 12 pylons driven 60 feet into the ground.’

The lot itself sits tightly between two other houses, and it does not boast a yard, although the back portion of the home sits up against the shoreline.

The lowest level of the residence features three guest bedrooms, while the middle level is reserved for public areas and the top is intended to be used by the owner.

The previous decor of the house was described as minimalist ‘yet warm’ by architecture firm Marmol Radziner, who collaborated with Ando on the property.

West’s house is roughly a half-hour’s drive to the Hidden Hills compound that he previously shared with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and their four children.

The former couple began purchasing properties in the area in 2014, not long after their eldest child North, aged nine, was born.

The pair went on to buy several homes that neighbored their own in the celebrity-favorite city.
