Home #1 – Picture #1 – This Mediterranean style mega-mansion is located off of Rocca Place in Los Angeles, CA. It is nearing completion.

Home #2 – Picture #2 – This huge mega-mansion is being built on Nimes Road in Los Angeles, CA. It is located right next to Mohamed Hadid’s 48,000 square foot home that just sold for a record setting price. The home looks to be bigger than Mohamed’s home, so I think it’s safe to say that it is over 40,000 square feet.

Home #3 – Pictures #3,4 – This massive mega-mansion is being built at the end of Angelo Drive in Los Angeles, CA. It looks to be in excess of 50,000 square feet

    My God #2 is gigantic and looks really complex

    The Nimes Road house does look huge, but if I’m going to build a house the size of a shopping mall I don’t want another house RIGHT next to it. The corner of the Hadid mansion is roughly 12 feet away from that new house. I realize the houses are built as close to the property lines as possible in order to make the yards larger but there comes a point when these ginormous houses are just too big for the lots they’re on. It’s almost like a billionaire’s ghetto with them being so close together.

      BINGO, again, Grrrowler……it is literal and clinical PSYCHOSIS to me to build a home that size and be able to most likely SEE YOUR NIEGHBOR IN THEIR HOUSE AND COMMUNICATE WITH THEM THROUGH YOUR MUTUAL OPEN WINDOWS is INSANITY. And I LOVE your verbage..”billionaire’s ghetto”…..LOLOLOL. PERFECT combination, and I’d never heard it before and never really thought such a place existed, but with these COLOSSUSES (it’s a real word….I looked it up!) basically within stones throw of each other………THEY DO!

    I’m kind of shocked such enormous houses are still being built all across America. Here I was thinking the recession would slow things down for at least the next 5 to 10 years – shows how much I know

      Stewie, that’s when they will sell, in 5 to 10 years.

        Stewie and George…..WELCOME to my MIND…..no matter how many intelligent sounding arguments/explanations I hear to the contrary, from people whose opinions/viewpoint I respect, I STILL find it almost incomprehensible that ANYone’s still building castles like this, TODAY. Obviously, if you’re a typical American (and that’s getting VERY hard to define today), that’s ALL you hear on the tv news and on the net……DOOM, GLOOM, DOOM, and MORE GLOOM. So, unless you’re one of the RICH, or work for them directly, or are a respected, intelligent, EXPERIENCED and legitimate financial advisor/economist/stock brocker, most of us wouldn’t have the slightest as to how these multi-million-and-billionaires become so in the worst recession since the Great Depression. Any ideas, fellow HOTR fans??

          Keep in mind this website is showing the biggest of the big–basically the top 0.001% of homes in the country. And the top 0.001 of people control about 30% of the wealth, or about the same amount as the bottom half, maybe the bottom 70 or 80 percent. So throwing around 30 million is nothing to these people that have liquid assets above 250 million. Plus a lot of them have made tons in the last year as the market came back up–they were already out before the crash began in 2008. It’s the “pretenders” that make a ton of money in one year and start building huge homes, then make nothing the next year that you see selling their homes right after/before they even move in. Or those (Goldfields) that see their net worth take a 90% haircut. There will always be a few (10,000) people that have most of the money because, sadly, they control the laws passed by the government (regardless of who we elect) and they will fight to the death to maintain this control. Meanwhile the middle class and lower class are left to worry about the next Iphone app or who’s on American Idol. Sad, but true. And Venom’s comment at 2:17 is dead on.

            Kev….you’re proportions sound pretty damn believable. All of that (I think, at least) is the considerable (and corrupt??) downside to a capitalist society……SO much FOR SO few and SO little for SO many. The older I get the more that truth fries my nerve endings, more and more.

            And, just to try & make myself feel better regarding the above, I WAS gonna’ say that Venoms’ comment at 2:17 is clearly too general. HOWEVER, with having been a real estate agent, and having done what I’m pretty sure is more reading & studying about the re-DEpression we’re in than your average American, I’m VERRRY sadly inclined to agree with him, more so rather than less.

            AND, your ending HIGHLY perceptive & CORRECT comments about the middle & lower class are FRIGHTENINGLY TRUE. I thoroughly believe that there as has NEVER been a time in this country where MORE citizens under a certain age (a very amateurish guess would be 50 & under) KNOW LESS about the very fundamentals of money & how to make and SAVE it than now. That fact truly makes my blood run cold, and I’m NO financial Einstein or rich guy whatsoever…..but at least I can pay my bills comfortably and am not in danger of losing my house.

      The money that is building these homes is from the thieves that stole the money from the rest of the public and caused most of the problems.

        Yeh couldn’t agree more with you guys. Having so much money and building such monstrosities while the middle classes are suffering like they haven’t in over 70 years is just crazy. The rich just keep getting richer, recession or not, while the rest of us fall further and further behind. I’m really worried about how our children and grandchildren are going to live like. Will there still be a middle class in 2040 or will there just be the rich and the poor like it used to be in the 19th century and earlier?

          Totally disagree with you guys. Just because you are smart and work hard and make more money than the average person means you should supplement everyone else?
          The very top wage earners actually pay the majority of the taxes.
          People need to learn to be responsible for themselves and not rely on others or government.

          It is none of your business how someone else spends there money.

            People manipulating the market (big banks like Goldman Sachs, JPM, etc…) hardly work hard for their millions and billions. It’s all a con game done a trillion dollar level. We aren’t talking about Sam Walton starting Walmart or Bill Gates, we are talking about thieves. Read up on it and you’ll realize what is going on with the market and how the super rich that do nothing but create “money”– actually paper wealth– are extracting true wealth (and stability of the economy) from this country’s citizens on a daily basis. And believe me, they think they deserve every penny they “work” for. What a load of BS. It may not be my business how they spend it, but if more people were knowledgeable about how they make it, there would be a helluva lot less being “earned” by these robber barons.

    Like others have already said, I’m stunned that new homes over 30k square feet are still being built. I hope once they are completed we get more pictures of the interior.

    I think (and could be way off) that the house in 3 and 4 is actually a townhome complex. I looked at the google map photo (old) and zillow shot of it, and that property recently sold (used to be a 4 or 5 unit townhome) and it said that more townhomes were planned there. That might explain the central courtyard looking design, and how basic and rectangular it is otherwise. Then again, considering the home going in on Nimes, this could be some huge mansion. Not really sure, to be honest.

    if you have ever driven on Nimes Road, the houses are not visible from the street. All you see are tall hedges, stone walls, gates, and trees as the estates sit high above the street. I suggest you do a Google street view of Nimes. While they may appear to be close together, the road is windy and the elevation rises as you go from Le Belvedere to the next mansion pictured above, and neighbors can’t reach out and touch each other. Still, these houses are enormous. The house on Angelo Drive looks like a mansion in planning Manion and Hablinski displayed on a former web page. That drawing called for an enormous cathedral looking megamansion.

    I love mega-mansion #2! Incredibly complex and detailed (although I wouldn’t be surprised to see it on the market in the next few years).

    I know 2 millionaires personally who built huge homes, never lived in them and moved on to build others. The homes now sit empty most of the time and it is a total waste of time, money and resources. These huge homes are just a reminder of why America is falling apart. They are a slap in the face of the hard working american citizen who can hardly make ends-meet. Shame on anyone who would build such a monstrosity. No on needs a home this big. Ugh!
