LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Building and Safety Department has revoked construction permits on a Bel Air mansion that neighbors claim is being built on unstable ground.

Owner-developer Mohamed Hadid had time to respond but didn’t so revocations went up Wednesday. Hadid’s attorney tells the Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/WO56l0) it was premature.

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.

Chief city inspector Luke Zamperini says Hadid can resubmit applications and get permits reactivated if they satisfy officials.
