The property goes by a few addresses. They are main address is 944 N Airole Way and then 937 N Stradella Road and 951 N Stradella Road. The parcel map below shows the property outlined in red. It's zoned LARE20 which is the city of Los Angeles residential estate. It's approximately 166,828 sf or 3.8 acres. It last sold 12/2012 for $28,000,000. It's had repeat lis pendens on it for mechanic liens i.e., unpaid contractors. It's had loans on the property up to $82,000,000. I think one reason the owner throws around the crazy price is to get media coverage and to get insane loans on the property. It's listed as vacant land so I don't think there is an occupancy permit. Sounds like the guy needs to sell it now. Whoever buys it will have to pay property tax in the amount of 1 1/4% of value per year. The original value is the sale price. 

The owner is Nile Niami born February 1968 in Los Angeles County, California, Crestlloyd LLC 8981 W Sunset Blvd #303, West Hollywood, CA 90069. I see a Nameer N Niami born 25 Feb 1968 with mother's maiden name Larkin. He also goes by Nile and Neil. His father is Hazim Mohammed Niami born 1932 in Baghdad, Iraq, a civil engineer who designed the Cinerama Dome. His parents divorced when he was six.

The APN of the property is 4369-026-021/020. I see soils and geological permits denied in 2017 and 2018. One was finalized very recently for grading.

I just found permits You have to search by legal description tract 22727 lots 1, 2, 3 and use APNs 4369-026-014/017/002. I think he's trying to obfuscate the property identification so people can't tell it's not as large as he's said it is and it has no occupancy permit. This is very common with these mega-mansions. It makes it difficult to evaluate unless you're an appraiser.

2014 they demolished existing home. 2014 permit to build new one story accessory building. 2017 permit to build new guard house. 2017 permit to build basement for servants. I see five almost dormitory like bedrooms, see below. Generally developers add a basement to be allowed to build more. They generally turn basement into another living level by digging out the sides so it's open. This is how sneaky developers can build more than legally allowed or approved. They can't include the basement area as a living area.

I see they will build two stories over a basement with five car garage. It says 333' x 333' floor area 44,440 sf, total floor area 73,934 sf. Still not 100,000 sf. Residential floor area is 44,440 sf. Again, not 100,000 sf. See below for how they measure the building. It's misleading.

They have to install on site fire hydrant. It looks like they can build max residential living 48,291 sf.

Below is the basic permit so people can read it for themselves.

There is a $82,500,000 construction loan with Hankey Capital LLC, a $30,188,235 other loan with Yogi Securities Holdings. With no occupancy permit this will be difficult to sell at the moment. He will have to sell it for a bit less than $500,000,000.

If you want to find docs in Los Angeles building and safety you need to search the APN. I see permits only for proposed site stabilization in response to an order to comply due to over steep lot. They have to install soil nails, anchors to hold in place netting for soils and engineering. Nile Niami signed this in 2014 saying he's an owner, builder. There are two permit application numbers 19020-10000-01428 and 19030-10000-03130. I see a 2018 permit for a new entry gate. See below for documents submitted by the owner. These are public documents. I did not hack their plans. I don't see any building permits for a home. I used all three addresses and the APN. Maybe there's a reason why we only see computer graphic drawings of this home. Per building and safety it doesn't yet exist. I think he just built the retaining walls and put in some landscaping. He can say it has 1,000,000 sf because it doesn't matter as I see no home permits.

Here are a few more ID numbers, names.  Parcel ID # PIN # is 144B149 302, APN 4369-026-021, county map red # MB 623-81/83, legal is tr 22727 lot 2. There is a permit for a retaining wall. That's all I see.

Below are the people working on the project:
David R Salter License C69911
Joshua Rafael Feffer License EG2138
Steven Jeffrey Cox License C48940

If you look at the pics the developer provides to media and others, they are mainly computer generated images. They aren't photos. That's because the property is far from ready to be shown. It's not even finished. Below are some recent satellite image pics from Google Pro Earth. Click to see larger. The slope of the land is over steep over 2:1 ratio so they had to reinforce the site. The reason for the slope is so they could build as much as possible.

 Below is the plan for the main house. Seems there was a home, pool and tennis court on the property originally. He didn't tear it all down.
