LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Building and Safety Department is planning to refer a Bel Air mansion owner to the Los Angeles city attorney’s office for prosecution after the developer lost his bid for more time to bring the home up to city codes.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1FtmICZ ) that the Commissioners voted 4 to 0 Tuesday to uphold a building inspectors finding’s that developer Mohamed Hadid’s project was against city codes.

Neighbors claim Hadid tore down an existing home and graded the property so his mansion could be 67 feet tall instead of the allowable 36 feet.

Attorney Joseph Horacek’s home is below the mansion, which he says looks like the Starship Enterprise and could give way and squash his residence. He claims portions of the hill have already slid onto his street.
