It’s been one of the toughest real-estate sales in town. R&B star Pharrell Williams has pulled his breathtaking downtown Miami condo off the real-estate market after attempting to sell it — even at a huge loss — for nearly two years. The art-filled palace 40 floors above the Magic City didn’t generate much interest at the latest price, $10.9 million. That’s $1.6 million less than what he bought it for in 2007, according to Miami-Dade County records. And the latest price was $6 million less than last year, at a time when Williams’ profile skyrocketed worldwide with tunes like Happy and Hunter. The floppy-hatted 41-year-old originally bought the 10,000-square-foot, five-bedroom penthouse in 2007 for $12.5 million. Williams stuffed it with Art Basel-style modern stuff, mostly by painter and sculptor Takashi Murakami, and giant Kidrobot toys. The singer first listed the crib at Brickell’s Bristol Tower in November 2012 for a whopping $16.8 million, partly because the condo has a private pool and second-to-none 360-degree view of Miami, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne and the ocean.
