All Falls Down: Kanye West’s “Dome Homes” Demolished Due to Noise Complaints & Permit Violations

When news broke last month that Kanye West was building dome-like concept homes in his Calabasas neighborhood, the idea seemed pretty neat and innovative overall at the time. However, it now looks like the whole thing was ill-fated from the beginning and has since been demolished for the most part by the City of Los Angeles.



TMZ, who also broke the original story, now reports that noise complaints from neighbors and the “minor” fact that ‘Ye never got the proper permits to start building in the first place led to the downfall of his otherwise genius idea. As of now, only one tower is still standing, as seen above in the video report by CBS LA, and even that one will have to be torn down before the September 15 deadline put in place by the L.A. County Department of Public Works.

In addition to regulation violations, Kanye and crew were reportedly doing construction for more than 12 hours on Saturdays — it’s against the area’s 8AM – 5PM building policy — and even working on Sundays, which isn’t allowed at all. Hey, maybe the new Wyoming property he just bought will be the new home for his dome community.

Do you think Kanye West is getting unfair treatment for a plan that could change the community, or did he bring this on himself for not following the proper procedure? Let us know your thoughts over on Facebook and Twitter!

Kanye West Is Now Making “Dome Homes” in Calabasas

Kanye West is always forward-thinking in his approach to things, whether it’s dealing with the future of fashion or less-than-wanted opinions about the future of American politics. However, his latest futuristic venture is actually pretty dope; Ye is now developing dome concept houses that he’s hoping will lead us into a more unified society.



TMZ gave a first look at the unique housing structures, which were designed to actually “break the barriers that separate classes” that we as a society created with upper, middle and lower class terminology. The units are currently being constructed in his Calabasas, California neighborhood, and are said to be inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home on Tatooine from the classic Star Wars universe. Dimensions for the homes are measured out at 50 feet tall and sit on an estimated 300-acre land plot. Kanye even went the extra mile by assigning his team to research the history of housing to make sure this project is as cutting-edge as it looks. Hey…”Dome Homes” sound pretty dope to us!

We’ll keep you updated as more info on these dome concept houses by Kanye West come to further fruition. Let us know if you’d live in one of these by sounding off on our Facebook and Twitter!
