Rick Ross, the iconic rapper and entrepreneur, is making headway this summer with a string of high-end acquisitions, including a rumored $37 million Star Island mansion in Miami. This comes on the heels of his recent purchase of a customized 2012 Gulfstream G550 private jet. Acquired by his Florida-based company, Maybach Air LLC, the jet aligns perfectly with his latest luxury living pursuit.
The Miami mansion buzz comes as a surprise, considering Rick Ross‘s primary residence has been a grand estate outside Atlanta, known as the largest private residence in Georgia. With 322 acres and a mansion of over 50,000 square feet, the estate, which Ross dubbed “The Promise Land”, is indeed a spectacle.
But the whispers of a Miami move have gained momentum, with TMZ reporting that Ross is under contract for the Star Island mansion. With a $37 million price tag, the 12,000-square-foot waterfront property is a significant step up from its 1999 purchase price of $4.6 million. Boasting 30-foot ceilings, Travertine floors, and pool/bay views, this mansion could soon add Rick Ross to Star Island’s illustrious list of residents, which includes celebrities such as Diddy, Gloria Estefan, and Jennifer Lopez.
