Kylie Jenner spends $7.07 Million On a Tribeca Penthouse

If you got it, flaunt it. Or at least buy a nice penthouse with it.

While the newly turned legal adult was house hunting, her sisters added, “Homeowners association fees could end up being like, a thousand bucks a month. You have to install rattlesnake fencing, get earthquake insurance and more. You have a lot to learn.” To say that Kylie is ahead of the learning curve is putting it lightly, as she may have bought her third home in a span of two years—a Tribeca penthouse for $7.07 million.

Maybe the Hollywood line-up seemed a bit lack luster on her property portfolio. So something on the east coast, perhaps? The big apple beckoned, with she and her entire brood spending months during fashion weeks in NYC anyway. So Manhattan it was. According to Curbed, Kylie will be calling Tribeca her new home. The young entrepreneur may have bought a Leonard street penthouse for $7.07 million. The sale is kept private, but if Kylie’s instagram shots are anything to go by, the penthouse is hers.

Designed by the talented and longtime Tribeca architect, Wayne Turrett, the apartment listing shows 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, 2 powder rooms and 6 terraces facing every direction. The downtown mansion in the sky boasts of 1,577 sq. ft. of private exterior space along with a private parking spot and keyed-in direct elevator.

She may not share the Kardashian last name, but Kylie Jenner has made some quick cash growing up on one of America’s favorite reality shows. And if there’s one thing the Kardashian/Jenner clans know best, it’s how to multiply those millions. Kylie however is turning into quite the real estate mogul, buying one home at a time. The 19-year old social media star/make-up maven/ owner of Kylie cosmetics first dropped $2.6 million on her Calabasas starter home. After working extensively on remodeling the home with designer Jeff Andrews, adding ultra-luxe features like a walk-in shoe closet and a glam room, the teenager then listed it on the market for $3.9 million. And the bigger-is-better concept isn’t just restricted to her ever-growing lip and derriere—Kylie wanted more than 4,851 sq. ft. of space. So she upgraded to a 7,000 sq. ft. Hidden Hills home dropping $6 million on it.

Looks like Leonard Street in Tribeca is about to get loud with peeps like Taylor Swift across at 155 Franklin and Kim Kardashian’s NYC digs at a stone’s throw from Kylie’s plush new pad. Watch out, people, it’ll be hard keeping up with the Jenner.
