First look: Inside hedgie’s vision to replace $50M Beverly Hills teardown
A hedge funder who purchased two adjacent lots on N. Hillcrest Road for a combined $50 million is planning to replace an old Mexican-style residence with a contemporary, museum-like compound, The Real Deal has learned.
Renderings obtained by TRD show a sleek, low-slung structure surrounded by trees, with a running waterfall and river-like features throughout.
The initial renderings were designed by mansion architects Shubin Donaldson.
Kabiller, a co-founder of investment management firm AQR Capital Management, is just one of a series of bigwigs calling N. Hillcrest home. Other big names include Twinkies heir Daren Metropolous, who recently bought a $65 million mansion on the cul-de-sac, and Minecraft mogul Markus Persson, who bought a $70 million contemporary home there in 2014.
