Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are heading to Miami. E! News reports that the ultra-famous couple are in the process of purchasing a $15.5 million condo at the lavish Faena House in Miami Beach.
The Kardashian-Wests, who announced yesterday that they’re expecting their fourth child in May, chose a 6,200-square-foot unit with four bedrooms, five and a half baths, and a terrace. The building offers amenities like a spa, fitness center, and private beach club as well. The condo was reportedly a Christmas gift from West to his wife, who E! claims has never seen the unit and was “completely surprised” by the purchase, as they had not been looking to expand their real-estate portfolio.

Designed by Foster + Partners, Faena House is the vision of Argentinean hotelier and developer Alan Faena and borders his Faena Hotel Miami Beach, a known hot spot during Art Basel, which West attended last month. (Nearby, Rem Koolhaas opened a cutting-edge event space dubbed the Faena Forum in late 2016.)
The California-based couple primary lives in a $20 million Hidden Hills mansion, which they renovated with the help of Belgian architect Axel Vervoordt.
The condo had been listed with Oren Alexander and Isaac Lustgarten of Douglas Elliman.
