Hugh Hefner, the creator of Playboy magazine, is a name that many people are familiar with due to the pig party allegation. Hugh sold the Playboy Mansion to Daren Metropoulos in 2009. The Playboy Mansion remodel is currently in its fourth year and still more work left to be done.
TMZ reports that the Playboy Mansion facelift is now in its fourth year, with costs surpassing $1 million, although it’s difficult to discern where all that money is going with the unaided eye. They appear to still have a long way to go.
Building permits show that a lot of work has been done on the property since 2020, including updating the roof, adding detached living quarters, remodeling the interior, installing a new elevator, installing new fire sprinklers, an underground generator, new lighting, and removing the old spa area and replacing it with a new one.
There have been numerous permits applied for, and the most recent cost found for all of those renovations is $1.6 million. $1 million has been already spent on renovations as of 2020, thus over the period of 4 years, there hasn’t exactly been a quantum leap.
The renovations started in 2019 when millionaire Daren Metropoulos began applying for licenses to update the renowned pad he had bought from Hugh Hefner, who passed away in 2017. Since then, tarps, scaffolding, and large machines have been placed over the Mansion.
It appears that there is still a lot to be done, even though the scaffolding is already being taken down. Soon, the lavish mansion will be ready. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates when the opulent mansion is all set.
