Drake is a man of the 6 and it looks like he’s about to put down some permanent roots in his hometown of Toronto by building one big ass mansion. According to Toronto’s Globe and Mail, Drake purchased two-acres of land where he intends to build his dream home that is reported to include a basketball court, a rooftop hot tub, and an indoor pool for when that Canada winter hits. The home will be a massive 21,000-square-foot mansion in Toronto’s posh Bridle Path area, which would make Drake neighbors with Gordon Lightfoot and Conrad Black.
The house will reportedly also include a special bar for chilled wine and champagne and a jersey museum for Drake to walk through and admire all of his Toronto sports teams. There is also a room set aside for “important artifacts,” which we can only imagine will be filled with his OVO gear, some Young Money chains, “Hotline Bling” Moncler, and his old Degrassi DVDs. Interestingly enough, the designer’s name on the home’s current plans is Ferris Rafauli, who is the same person that built the Sher Club, which is located inside of the Toronto Raptors arena.
It looks like the process of building the home will come with some hurdles, as Drake is applying for exemptions to zoning bylaws to construct the mansion the way he wants it. Drake’s camp did not immediately respond to Complex’s request for comment, but take a look at the various rooms listed out in the blueprints below.
