Mohamed Hadid takes plea deal after all in mega-mansion case

Well, this has been a wild ride.

Mohamed Hadid took a plea deal after all, nearly three years after building a behemoth mansion at 901 Strada Vecchia that violated multiple building and zoning codes.

As of late May, the developer was facing the possibility of going to trial, although his attorney said otherwise a month prior. Hadid, the father of supermodels Gigi and Bella, will be sentenced June 27. Prosecutors requested three years probation, 200 hours of community labor, a $3,000-fine, and another $250,000 to go toward a community fund, according to a sentencing memo from the City Attorney’s Office, the Beverly Hills Courier reported.

As for the 30,000-square-foot mega-mansion itself, it remains unclear whether it will be razed. Hadid claims he needs time to revise the plans but critics say it could never be brought to compliance under Bel Air’s new standards.

In the case that Hadid does not finish the structure legally, Senior Assistant City Attorney Tina Hess has asked the city for a bond to ensure that it will have the money for demolition.

Hadid rejects that idea wholly.

“Demolish this house? Never!” he told Town and Country Magazine in February. “This house will last forever. Bel Air will fall before this will.” [BHC]Cathaleen Chen

Correction: A previous version of this story said prosecutors were seeking $25,000 for a community fund. The correct amount is $250,000.
