Mega-mansion developer Nile Niami dished on his latest palace of excess — the $500 million Bel Air mansion he calls The One. It is expected to hit the market later this year, for regular guys, he said, who happen to be billionaires.

Niami provided a guided tour around the fabulous 100,000-square-foot hilltop estate, which is by far his most ambitious project yet, the Guardian reported. It dwarfs his most recent completed project, the 20,500-square-foot Opus mansion in Beverly Hills that made headlines last year for its racy promotional video.

The One drips with over-the-top luxury and a sleek design sense Niami called “badass” to entice his usual billionaire male clientele, who he called “normal dudes [who are] down to earth.”

“I want to look bitchin’ and cool but they don’t care, they arrive in a Prius,” he said.

Its grounds include a nightclub, 40-seat movie theater, bowling alley, four infinity pools (including its infinity moat), and a room with walls and ceilings made out of jellyfish tanks. With 20 bedrooms, it’s essentially a personal boutique hotel for whoever can afford the coin.

Beyond that, there’s an intangible value a buyer gets when he buys one of his homes, Niami said.

“Anyone who buys one of my homes is making a statement about who they are,” he said. “These properties reflect L.A. living at its finest.”  [The Guardian] — Dennis Lynch
