Pop singer Katy Perry recently acquired a condominium in what is currently West Hollywood’s tallest building, the Sierra Towers, for a reported $11 million.
Located at the intersection of WeHo, Beverly Hills and the Sunset Strip’s western end, Sierra Towers has been an iconic feature of the Los Angeles skyline since its completion in 1965. The 31-story building, designed by architect Jack A. Charney, has long attracted celebrity residents, including Adam Sandler, the Osbournes, and Mary Hart.
Perry’s new residence, referred to as a “junior penthouse,” was previously owned by Jen Kao, daughter of billionaire Min Kao, the founder of Garmin. Kao purchased the 3,000-square-foot condominium in 2016 for $9.3 million and made customizations to suit her personal taste. After being listed for a few months with an asking price of $12.5 million, Perry finalized the purchase.
The condo offers a range of luxurious features, including a ruby-red movie theater, a customized yoga wall and a wet bar made primarily of zebra wood. The unit boasts black walnut hardwood floors and doors, automated blackout shades and steel windows. Its glass doors open to a balcony providing sweeping views of the hills.
The residence also includes a sleek kitchen with high-end appliances and a walk-in pantry, a private office, and a master suite with a marble bathroom. The unit was created by combining two smaller condos, resulting in two spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Perry’s acquisition of this property complements her primary residence in Montecito. She purchased an estate in Montecito near the home of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for $14 million three years ago. The Los Angeles condo will serve as a convenient secondary dwelling in the bustling city.
Residents of Sierra Towers fork over $5,294 monthly for their HOA dues, which pay for a range of amenities including 24/7 security, concierge services, a communal outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center,and valet parking.
Zach Goldsmith of The Agency held the listing. Brett Lawyer of Carolwood Estates represented Perry in the sale.
