Jay-Z and Beyonce lawyer up to stop Richard Meier house from blocking their view in East Hampton

Architect to the stars Richard Meier designed a new 8,325-square-foot house for daughter Ana Meier to build on Jones Creek Lane, but her neighbors, superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce, are objecting because they say it will block the view from their Briar Patch Road home, the East Hampton Star reported. The Meiers need variances from the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals to build and lawyers for both sides argued for their clients at the last board meeting. Richard Meier bought the land in question in 1972 before transferring it to Ana, while Beyonce and family bought their “Gatsby-esque” mansion for $25.9 million in 2017. [EHS]
