It looks like electronic dance music star Moby has found an additional source of money after receiving multiple platinum awards and selling over 20 million albums worldwide. Moby has sold his Noho penthouse at 7 Bond Street for $5.8 million—$700,000 less than the original asking price of $6.5 million—after purchasing it a few years back for $3.75 million. Moby’s penthouse is located on the sixth floor of a building built in 1904 and converted into condominiums in 1986. Although the building has 20 units and no amenities apart from an elevator and central air conditioning, Moby made sure his penthouse would stand out from the crowd by giving it a significant overhaul.

During the renovation, Moby tore down the wall separating the kitchen from the living room to create a 37-foot living room/kitchen combo with 19-foot high ceilings and an amazing skylight. Combine this with the penthouse’s sizable roof deck and you’ve got the perfect party location.

In 2011, the Harlem-born musician, DJ, photographer, and philanthropist moved into a palatial (literally!) building in the Hollywood Hills. Considering that Moby sold his second Manhattan home within a few years of selling his penthouse in the El-Dorado building, we think he may have moved to Los Angeles for good.
