The New Biggest Mansion in Los Angeles Will Ask $500 Million

The biggest house in Los Angeles has swollen even larger in size and is getting a pretty big ego now too. Bloomberg reports that the finished project will measure more than 100,000 square feet, making it bigger than the infamously unfinished Versailles estate in Florida. The spread is being developed on spec, naturally, and will feature a 74,000-square-foot main residence with a 5,000-square-foot master bedroom, a 30-car garage, a “Monaco-style casino,” and three smaller houses spread across four acres. “The house will have almost every amenity available in the world,” prolific spec house developer Nile Niami says about his latest project. How much will every amenity available in the world cost? $500 million.

If all that doesn’t seem ridiculous enough, don’t worry: there will also be tons of wasted water. One pool is so chintzy; everyone who’s anyone with $500 million has to have four pools these days, and so this place will of course, including one in the basement and another on the second level of the mansion, according to construction permits. As it stands, the landscaping will require “about 20,000 square feet of grass” in the middle of a devastating statewide drought that has provoked mandatory water cutbacks. The mansion’s designer, Paul McClean, says “There a lot of things in the house that will help to preserve water. But those are things that correspond with luxury houses, and I can’t tell you that it’s a green and energy-efficient house.” Originally, plans called for five pools, so maybe that’s what passes for high-end conservation—one less pool than you actually want.

Does the $500-million asking price seem unreal? It is. The LA Business Journal estimated last year that this project would ask “in the $150 million-plus range.” Jonathan Miller, president of appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. (and Curbed contributor), tells Bloomberg “I’m skeptical. My first reaction is laughter. But we’re in this perpetual state of surprise as new thresholds are broken.” If it sells for even half of that, though, it will still be the most expensive sale in the US: the current record holder, an East Hampton estate owned by a hedge fund guy, sold last year for $147 million. (Not too far away from Bel Air, in Beverly Hills, the tacky Palazzo di Amore is waiting patiently for someone to pay $195 million.)

Niami, also a movie producer, is a seasoned spec builder. Last year he sold a humble 30,000-square-foot estate with a dental office in the basement and a 17,000-square-foot mansion in Holmby Hills with an underwater tunnel (Diddy bought that one). Niami is currently “pouring concrete” on his Bel Air record-setter, and expects to be working for about 20 more months on the enormous compound.

Most expensive penthouse of N.York sold for $ 100 million (photos)

One57a

The real estate market in America has skyrocketed. Best proof is the penthouse on One57 skyscraper located in the Midtown area of Manhattan, which was sold for $100.5 million, making it the most expensive apartment ever sold in New York.

The penthouse is located at 1,004 feet and particularly in the 89th and 90th floor. It has an area of 11,000 square feet and includes six bedrooms, a steam room, a library, and an indoor cinema. Residents will also have access to the amenities of the hotel Park Hyatt, which occupies the first 39 floors of the building.

However, the penthouse at One57 is not the only sought, until recently, buyer. The tower 520 Park Avenue includes a penthouse for sale for over $130 million; the price is expected to increase further.

Michael’s mansion for sale: Home where Jackson died is put on the market for $23.9million

Back on the market: The home where Michael Jackson died has been put up for sale againBy DAILY MAIL

It has been on and off the market for years. And now the mansion Michael Jackson was renting for $100,000-a-month when he died has been put up for sale once again.  The house, which has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and a seven-car garage all sprawled over 17,200 square feet comes with an asking price of $23.9million.

It was listed for a higher price of $29million when it was put on the market in August 2010. However it is understood to have remained empty since the superstar’s death in June 2009. Despite this it may be lived in soon as it has reported by TMZ that a ‘major celebrity’ is due to look around the property tomorrow.

And the website also alleges that the realtor will only show the property to people who are pre-qualified, which means it has been verified that they have enough money to purchase the pricey home. As well as the expansive grounds and spacious rooms, the mansion boasts a movie theatre and swimming pool.

The 50-year-old singer died of a Propofol overdose in June 2009 in the house in Holmby Hills, which is in upmarket Bel Air, Los Angeles.

The asking price for the house, which is owned by Ed Hardy CEO Hubert Guez, has been slashed several times

It was put up for sale back in 2008 for a whopping $38million.

After Guez initially tried to rent the property for $300,000 a month, and failed, he decided to put the house up for sale at the reduced price to offload it.

Jackson had rented the house from Guez while he rehearsed for ‘This is It’ at the Staples Centre in downtown Los Angeles.

He had been living there with his three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, eight.

The superstar’s final concert tour which he referred to as his ‘final curtain call’ and was due to start at London’s O2 arena only weeks after the singer died.

He was taken to the UCLA medical centre where attempts to resuscitate him failed and he was pronounced dead.

Armani Beats Gates and Abramovich to Buy $190M Scorpios Isl., property of Aristotle Onassis

by Jared Paul Stern via Luxist Source : IlSole 24ORE, video theULC-Greek Heart

Legendary Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani has reportedly become the proud owner of one of the world’s most beautiful and expensive private islands – Skorpios (above). In closing the deal, said to be worth about $190 million according to reports in the European press, the designer faced stiff competition from rival bidders including Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich and Madonna. Located in the Ionian Sea off the western coast of Greece, the island formerly belonged to famed Greek shipping billionaire Aristotle Onassis and was the site of his wedding to Jackie Kennedy in 1968. It was sold to Armani by his granddaughter and heiress, Athina Onassis Roussel. There is a lavish villa on the island known as the Pink House which Onassis built for Jackie, along with tennis courts and plush gardens, though most of the island remains undeveloped and pristinely beautiful.
