When it comes to real estate, Mohamed Hadid goes big every time. Remember his former manse — ya know, the one that was on the market for $85 million? Right. Though he hasn’t been living quite as large since moving out of that sprawling space, the ex-husband of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Hadid continues to make big gambles in his role as a developer.
Despite being ordered to tear down a 30,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion he was building last year — and allegedly owing $1.2 million in taxes on the property — Mohamed has apparently moved on to an even bigger project. According to Daily Mail, he is now building a 55,000-square-foot mansion set on 100 acres of prime Beverly Hills land… that's right next door to the home where Prince Harry and Megan Markle are currently living in.
That’s right, the royal couple are currently staying at Tyler Perry’s $18 million compound, which itself includes eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, and is located in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates gated community.
The property borders Mohamed’s latest project, which, according to the outlet, has hit some bumps in the proverbial road. The 15-bedroom, 22-bathroom home is set to have not one, but two swimming pools (see renderings of the mansion here), not to mention a 22,000-square-foot guest house.
But Mohamed has been forced to stop working on the project by the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety because he allegedly wasn’t complying with the building permits he had been issued. “The project is on hold right now,” David Lau, consultant engineer on the construction, told DailyMailTV. “Mr. Hadid ran into some issues, some problems with the city. The permits will be revoked if Mr. Hadid does not correct the problems and bring the construction into compliance. But as far as I know he is working to try to straighten out these issues.”
