A house currently under construction near Highlandville spans almost a full acre from wall to wall, on a 500-acre site. The ambitious project, nearly three years in and barely at the first floor, totals 72,000 square feet. Putting that figure in perspective might require a few comparisons. According to the Census Bureau, the average new home size over the last five years was between 2,100 and 2,500 square feet. Springfield’s Pythian Castle is between 34,000 and 39,000 square feet, said owner Tamara Finocchiaro. Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ house is 66,000 square feet.
The property’s deed says the Steven T. Huff Family, LCC is located in Leesburg, Va. Available online records of political campaign contributions show a Steven T. Huff of Leesburg to be an engineer and chief technology officer of Overwatch Systems, Ltd. According to the Overwatch website, the company “delivers multi-source intelligence (multi-INT), geospatial analysis and custom intelligence solutions to the Department of Defense, national agencies and civilian organizations. ... More than 25,000 analysts in the U.S. Department of Defense and the larger intelligence community utilize Overwatch solutions.”

Can you fix the link in your post? Just goes to a blank page for me.
Without having read the article, why are you claiming the PTB have anything to do with this? Because the dude is rich? Is anyone who has more money than you part of the PTB?
If the article does mention this as some sort of larger project, then I apologize. However just because some dude has nothing better to do than blow too much money on too much wasted space, then I am having trouble seeing the connection to TPTB.

I think they know something that we do not and they are not sharing. I found an article about another guy, some mogul in Australia, who is doing exactly the same thing.
