Billionaire property developer racks up THIRD of all pandemic house parties hit with citations in LA

A billionaire property developer has been found responsible for more than a third of all pandemic house parties hit with citations by the City of Los Angeles, DailyMail.com can reveal.

According to official figures, brash realtor Nile Niami was slapped with five of the 15 fines doled out by the City for illegal parties held in LA between April, when the pandemic first took hold, and August this year.

And DailyMail.com has learned the party-loving businessman was hit with two more  citations last month for large parties breaching coronavirus public health rules.

Niami denies approving any of the parties and said he has cooperated with the City.

But neighbors in the affected Hollywood Hills enclaves where he owns multiple mansions – totaling a reported $700 million – have complained of hundreds of revelers with no masks turning up in party buses, blaring music through speakers set up on the driveway of the properties and drunken guests yelling and arguing in the street into the early hours.

Niami, 52, has been renting to groups of young wealthy social media influencers and TikTok stars, raking in as much as $50,000 a month in rental income.

At a house showing last year for one of his $55 million mansions, potential buyers were greeted by a live camel and treated to displays by scantily-clad fire dancers.

And in an attempt to sell another $100 million home Niami shot a promotional video featuring nude models painted gold and wearing BDSM chain mail, writhing on its beds.

The property mogul, who began his career as a low budget movie producer, is also currently attempting to sell the most expensive home in the country: a $500 million estate in Beverly Hills he calls The One.

Data obtained from the City of Los Angeles shows Niami’s properties have been repeatedly cited for rule-breaking parties since the pandemic took hold in April.

Between April and August this year the city issued 15 citations, with fines totaling $7,500.

The fines seem to have failed to deter the rule breakers however, with the largest levy only amounting to $1,050 and the average at just $500.

One of Niami’s properties, a $40 million, 14,000 sq ft six-bedroom home on Londonderry Place in the Hollywood Hills, was cited three times – on April 15, May 12 and again just three days later on May 15.

Police served notices each time to Niami for ‘loud or unruly gatherings’ against city ordinances.

Less than two weeks later another of the developer’s Hollywood homes on St Ives Drive was cited twice for raucous parties, on May 26 and again on May 28. 

Daniele Aga lives next door to the Londonderry Place property, and told DailyMail.com the last party there was a month ago with dozens of maskless youths arriving in a party bus. 

Aga said neighbors had tried to reason with Niami, but she claimed they were ignored. 'Sometimes the police come and put up a citation. But the owner doesn't care. He's a big developer. It's used as a party house,' she said

A neighbor said: 'They drop young people late at night around 11pm. A couple of hours later they were making a lot of noise, I could hear them saying ''Are we going to the next one?''' the 75-year-old said. 'I would say 20 or 30 people with no masks. Sometimes there's a party bus.'

A neighbor of the St Ives Drive property, who also asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, said Niami’s mansion used to be home to rapper Puff Daddy’s son.

The three bed, 6,000 sq ft home is worth $11 million according to Zillow and boasts stunning views over LA.

The Hollywood resident said the exclusive street is now a hotspot for young TikTokkers hosting raucous bashes, with a second house also disturbing neighbors and gathering dozens of people indoors without masks.

‘They keep me up until 5am. I’m exhausted,’ the neighbor said. ‘It happens any day of the week, day and night. Nobody’s wearing a mask. And when they’re not all indoors together they’re drag racing down the street.’

A nanny at a nearby home, Laney Downie, told DailyMail.com residents were ‘sick of it’.

‘They usually start on Thursday, even late afternoon you see people coming,’ the 52-year-old said.

‘It’s COVID, how are you having parties? I never see any kids going in or out with a mask on. You see carloads going up and down and all the spots are taken.

‘I was walking my dog. We passed a convertible BMW with four people in it. The little punks were sarcastic to an elderly couple walking by, then they all flipped me off for no reason.’

The LA Mayor’s Office told DailyMail.com that both of Niami’s properties received citations again last month for large parties breaching coronavirus public health rules – putting Niami at risk of having electricity to the mansions shut off.

‘The City has disconnected utility service for several residences whose owners and residents have failed to follow our public health orders and ignored multiple warnings to stop hosting large gatherings,’ a spokeswoman said in a statement.

‘In October, the Los Angeles Police Department affixed warnings on the properties at 9066 St Ives Drive and 1369 Londonderry Place about possible utility disconnection for hosting large gatherings there.’

A spokesman for Niami said he did not approve of the parties at his properties and has cooperated with the City.

‘These citations were given to renters of the properties owned by Mr. Niami who was not present, and in no way approved these events to take place,’ the spokesman said. ‘Unfortunately, luxury rentals and the housing rental market in general, are experiencing this more frequently during COVID. Mr. Niami has responded to and cooperated with the city to resolve this issue.’

However, Ellen Evans, president of the Doheny Sunset Plaza Neighborhood Association, told DailyMail.com that property owners need to take more responsibility.

She said the parties bring sports cars speeding up the windy, narrow streets and revelers in their droves.

‘People are having parties here because the nightclubs are closed,’ she said.

‘There’s these TikTok houses. They’re constantly having people over without masks, being loud. It’s a constant party for them.

‘There’s a lot of screaming in the street and honking in the middle of the night. The noise nuisance is the worst part for me.’

‘People have been driving their Lambos as quickly as they can to the parties. At night the number of sports cars flying up the street was really high and really noisy,’ the 55-year-old added.

‘The parties start between 11pm and 12am, and they can go on until 5am if the police are busy.

‘Often they end when the police shut them down, then start again 20 minutes later.’

This summer LA Mayor Eric Garcetti began a harsher crackdown, cutting off power to houses that repeatedly flouted public health rules.

After multiple citations, Bryce Hall and other TikTok stars had the electricity temporarily cut to their mansion in August.

‘With more than 2,000 Angelenos — and over 170,000 Americans — lost to COVID-19, we need every resident to undertake critical safeguards to stop the spread of this virus. That includes not hosting or attending parties that put themselves, their neighbors and many others at risk,’ Garcetti said at the time.

It’s understood Niami has turned to renting his mansions to raucous TikTok teens after failing to sell them for years.

According to a July report in the Wall Street Journal, the developer has not sold a major project since 2017, and was due in October to repay a $82.5 million loan on his as yet unsold $500 million mega-mansion.

Niami was also sued in October for allegedly failing to pay a $200 million loan on one of his properties.

Niami is contesting the lawsuit’s claims, and denied to the Journal that he was in any financial trouble.

The mansion mogul grew up in a poor area of the San Fernando Valley, and lost his special-education teacher mother in 2001 when she was murdered by a home intruder.
