Jeff Bezos resumes construction on $175M home after engagement

Call him Bezos the Builder.

Jeff Bezos has resumed construction on his $175 million home after getting engaged to Lauren Sánchez.

A group of men were seen back at work on the roof of the sprawling, three-story mega-mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif., in photos published by the Daily Mail Thursday.

Bezos, whose net worth is $138 billion, purchased the 10-acre estate — previously owned by former Warner Bros. president Jack Warner — in early 2020.

This April, however, the Amazon founder halted the expansion of his 28,000-square-foot love nest, which features the main home, a guesthouse, a gym, a pergola and a separate house for security.

Bezos — who failed to complete a planning application for a new “game court fence” — had planned to extend the property with a new pool house, powder room and retaining walls, per the Daily Mail.
