KANYE West’s latest "housing pods" project has been completed at this $14million Wyoming ranch and the star has bought land worth $2million in nearby Cody "to expand his church," The Sun can exclusively reveal.
Kanye, facing a possible divorce from his wife Kim Kardashian, has also demolished three buildings at his $28 million estate as he continues to "put down roots" in the area.
However, The Sun has been told Kanye has not been seen at the ranch since last year when when he claimed Kim had considered aborting their first child North.
Kanye has told how he hopes the "pods" will help solve America's housing problems and that their design will inspire the look of future cities.
Speaking about his housing plans in a 2018 interview, Kanye said: “I’m going to be one of the biggest real-estate developers of all time, what Howard Hughes was to aircrafts and what Henry Ford was to cars, just the relationships I have with architects, my understanding of space and sacred proportions, just this new vibe, this new energy. We’re gonna develop cities.”
A local in Cody who has spent time at the ranch, which Kanye bought in September 2019, told The Sun: “The pods have taken the best part of a year to build.
“They’re made to Kanye’s exact specifications. He had them built close to his studio where he works on his music and fashion so he can check on their progress.
“There were three houses next to them but Kanye wanted them demolished so that he can expand the pods if he decides to do so.
“He was last here before Christmas. At the moment, there’s just some security guards and maintenance people there.
"He's putting down roots in the area, he's not leaving any time soon."
The new 30ft-high pods are different to the ones he constructed at his and Kim’s mansion in Calabasas, CA, two years ago as this time they have been lined with concrete and not just wood.
Kanye opted to tear down the pods in Calabasas after Los Angeles planning officials told him he did not have permission to build permanent structures.
He then decided to build the prototypes, part of his “Yeezy Home” initiative, at his ranch which is not subject to the same kind of regulations.
The Sun can also reveal the site in Cody where Kanye is preparing to host his popular Sunday Service.
The site has two, home-style office building and a large, semi-permanent marquee.
Checks carried out by The Sun also show he has bought plots of land around the buildings.
The land has been bought up under a new business name Kanye has created after his youngest child with Kim, “Psalm Cody Commercial.”
The seven plots including the church site, bought by Kanye a year ago, cost the star just over $2million.
A worker at the Northwest Rural Water District office which is next to the land, told The Sun: “We’ve heard it’s going to be a church.
“We’ve seen Kanye here twice, so far it’s mainly his staff and workmen we see here.”
