Over 1,500 residents of Benedict Canyon and the surrounding areas have joined the Save Benedict Canyon coalition to officially oppose the massive, mega-mansion project and call on the City of Los Angeles to require a full environmental review consistent with state law.

The Mega-COMPOUND

The Prince has refused to provide a stable project description for the proposed construction at the property, but it is clear that the project will be MASSIVE.  Various versions of the project have ranged as high as 85,000 square feet. 

The construction of this mega-mansion will mean over 100,000 truck trips hauling rubble and construction materials up and down narrow canyon roads causing nightmarish traffic congestion for over three years.  The project will also bring ear splitting noise through the canyons from on-site rock and debris crushing, compromised neighborhood access for fire and other emergency vehicles, significant air pollution, and irrevocable degradation of the canyon environment.

The Prince’s property has already been the subject of extensive illegal grading, illegal retaining walls, and illegal construction activities for years.  The City has issued 13 orders to comply over several years citing serious safety hazards created on the property.  The landowner has failed to remedy ANY of the conditions, and once started illegal construction that had to be blocked by a LA Department of Building and Safety “stop work” order.
