Bing Maps is currently updating their bird’s eye view for certain locations and finally has an updated view of Beverly Hills, CA. Now you can see some of the newly built mega mansions when they were being built.

Mega Mansion #1 – Pictures #1-4 – This is the 60,000 square foot “Chateau des Fleurs” mega mansion located on Bellagio/Stone Canyon Road.

Mega Mansion #2 – Pictures #5-8 – This is the 48,000 square foot “Le Palais” mega mansion located at 904 N Crescent Drive.

Mega Mansion #3 – Pictures #9-12 – This is the 53,000 square foot mega mansion belonging Anthony Pritzker, the heir to the Hyatt HotelFortune and Managing Partner of the Pritzker Group. It is located off of Angelo Drive.

*Thanks to HOTR reader Al Robinson for letting us know about the update!

    Google Maps birds-eye > Bing birds-eye. I’ll wait for Google to update their databases. Honestly, Bing has a lot of catching up to do (even though it came out with birds-eye first)…

    I give up. I’m just not talented or artistic enough to picture the finished products. All I’m seeing is commercial parking garage, office space and warehouse. A warehouse with a pool.
    I’m sure they will look duly impressive and gorgeous when completed, but until then…

    From these perspectives they all look like office buildings. I’m sure they’ll be suitably impressive from ground level and everyone will know that whoever lives in them is very important (which seems to be the ultimate goal for these places).

    I have always had a fascination for seeing mansions from above the ground. Seeing how big they are, especially compared with their neighbors. Yes, so far these mansions look like office buildings… but think about that… They look like office buildings. That’s just HOW BIG they are!!

    Looking at these mansions is like a non-dirty Voyeurism.

    If EVER there were more clear & irrefutable examples of “Size Envy” on the part of the MEGALOMANIACAL owners of these MONSTROSITIES, I hope I never see them. And I guaran-damn-tee you that these men have the self-esteem of a DEAD FLEA……how utterly repulsive, revolting & psychotic to build such GARGANTUAN AIRPORTS as homages to their TINY little egos’, if you know what I mean. Truly disgusting.

    It’s very difficult to judge the design of any of these behemoths yet, but the siting of #2 is downright comical. Opposite a cheap apartment building (presumably) and wedged in between “relatively” modest mansions, it won’t come off well. #3, by contrast, is at least sited on a reasonably appropriate sized building site. Architecturally, it doesn’t seem convincing, but it may still be too early to judge. Since it won’t hit the market for decades, presumably, I hope we will at least see good ground-level photos soon.

      FYI #2 is not opposite a cheap apartment building. The building opposite it is The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows.

        Meant to say cheap “looking,” that is, very plain. Nothing in that ZIP code is actually cheap.

        Sorry, Paul. But that makes it even worse. It’s bad enough to build your dream mansion on such a small lot, it’s bad enough that there are other homes so close to it, now I find out that right across the road is a hotel…A hotel? Are you kidding me?

        I guess I’m one of those weird people who believe if you’re going through the trouble of building a mansion that big, that you don’t site it across the road from a busy commercial structure. Who shoehorns a mansion into that size plot on that busy a street? Unless it’s located in London, Tokyo or Manhattan, or on the water, a 48,000sf home really should be on an estate size lot.

          The reason is obvious: building your house across from a busy hotel means that more people are likely to see it, and be impressed by it.

          I was not making a judgement as to good or bad. I simply stated that it was a hotel and not cheap apartments that is across the way. All space is limited, not just that in London, Tokyo or Manhattan. People place value on location be it in those places, Timbuktu or Hoboken.

          If I am not mistaken, there is a certain industry that is central to this area that may have something to do with someone wanting to build here as opposed to say Montana.

            Paul, I didn’t mean to imply that you were making a judgment. I was simply reacting to reading this mega mansion was situated right across the street from a hotel.

            The cynicism isn’t needed, I am well get the value of having a home in Beverly Hills, or Beverly Park or Holmbly Hills instead of Montana. Couldn’t pay me to move to Montana. What I don’t see however, is the burning need to build a house of that size on such a small lot, directly across from a busy hotel, and pretty much right on top of a busy street.

            Unless it’s for the reason Grrrowler said. That they’ve opted to trade estate and privacy for penis stroking by proxy. People of means from all around the world will check into the hotel and bear witness to a 48k sf house and the owner’s show of wealth and status. If that was his intent then he nailed it.

      The comment made me laugh out loud because the Beverly Hills Hotel is iconic. As soon as I saw the Green Walls and the striped awnings I knew it was next to the hotel which is a pretty cool place to be.

    I feel like I should say this:

    The reason why people like Kenny and I get soo excited for updated images of bird’s eye views is because it’s at least progress. Plain and Simple. It’s progress. The people who take the images of the “above ground / bird’s eye” views take FUCKING FOREVER!!!!! to update their shit.

    I don’t mean to offend anyone by my comment.

    Wow! That’s nice. Do you have the Apple Maps images of these mansions?

    Someone should ask Finton over on his FB page why isn’t he releasing more photos of the Château. Him and William Hefner. Such a shame!

    That house on North Crescent that was built by Mohamed Hadid is way over priced. It is way too big to be squeezed onto that small lot with all those little homes surrounding it and it is on a corner lot by all that traffic on that major street. These homes that are over 25,000 square feet really need to be built on at least 2 acres bare minimum. Preferably 4 acres or more. And should have expansive park-like grounds, gardens, Olympic size pool and tennis court. Also they should be somewhat secluded and not directly in front of a major street.

    MY QUESTION IS WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BUILDING THESE HOMES? you would have to be a super rich billionaire to afford these homes then the up-keep would be staggering. You know you are not going to take out the trash it would take a large staff of people to clean this mall shaped home. I dont get it, you would need walky talkies to find the kids or your wife. Why not do something good for other people like give some money away to the poor or someone who needs it.
