Spec megamansion pioneer Mohamed Hadid is dealing with a new drama at another one of his developments.

The city has hit Hadid with a stop-work order at a site the developer owns in Beverly Crest, where he is looking to build a four-story home with two pools.

Hadid must “address corrections issued to the property before any construction can proceed,” DOB spokesperson Kim Arther told Curbed. The agency will pull at least 12 permits issued for the site unless the corrections are made.

L.A. City Councilmember David Ryu, who represents the area, told Curbed that Hadid “has every right to build on land that he owns.”

But given his track record, Ryu said, he will be monitoring the project more closely. Hadid reportedly owns around 100 acres around the Beverly Crest parcel, which is near the Hastain Trail in Franklin Canyon Park.

The developer has been battling with the city on multiple fronts. He has been embroiled in a long fight over his flagship spec mansion project, a 30,000-square-foot home on 901 Strada Vecchia Road in Bel-Air.

In a cover story for The Real Deal’s latest Los Angeles issue, Hadid discussed his career and his controversies, including accusations that he bribed building inspectors at the Bel Air project.

“I have never bribed anybody, never given a dime to anybody,” he said. “Do you think I would go to an inspector walking around and say, ‘Do you want some cabinets?’ It’s so outrageous.” [Curbed]TRD Staff
