The renovation of Jeff Bezos' opulent Kalorama Mansion in Washington D.C. has been going since 2018 and appears headed for completion by early 2020. And the old news this mansion is lavishly -- some say, obscenely -- appointed is again igniting a new social media meltdown.

Details of the renovation work on Bezos' mansion at the tony Kalorama neighborhood of D.C. was revealed by the cultural magazine, Washingtonian, back in April 2018. The Obamas and the Kushners also live in Kalorama.

Bezos, the world's wealthiest person, paid a hefty $23 million for a 27,000 square-foot mansion -- which was the former Textile Museum -- in 2016. The museum consisted of two historic buildings: the Myers family home designed by John Russell Pope, and an adjacent building designed by Waddy Wood.

Blueprints for the major renovation acquired by Washingtonian through a public records request reveal how Bezos sees himself as he defines luxury his way. The architectural plans said Bezos "is combining what are now two separate properties that date to the early 1900s into an East Coast pied-à-terre (a secondary lodging) for his family."

The $12 million renovation undertaken by the Barnes Vanze architecture firm combined the Pope home and the Wood building, both of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Pope home is a 10-bedroom residence with eight full bathrooms and six partial bathrooms.

The end result of the renovation now taking place will be a palace (What else could it be?) with 25 bathrooms, 11 bedrooms, five living rooms, two kitchens, two libraries, two workout gyms, two elevators in painted bronze steel and unlacquered brass, a ballroom and an extremely fabulous solarium. In addition, there will be 1,006 light fixtures, six dishwashers, 48 smoke detectors, four gas fireplaces, five bath tubs, five refrigerators, 12 kitchen sinks and 10 showers.

The Pope house "will serve primarily as the family’s residence, with all the essentials for a tech-titan billionaire." It will have a whiskey cellar and a wine room. There will also be an exercise room, TV room, and an upstairs family kitchenette.

The larger Woods' house will have a 1,500 square-foot ballroom, with "floor-to-ceiling Ionic fluted columns, a limestone fireplace, and a balconied promenade with iron guardrails that overlooks the space from the second floor."

Bezos' obscene opulence didn't go down well with Robert Reich, who was labor secretary in the Clinton administration. Reich is also a Rhodes Scholar, a best-selling author and a professor of public policy at the University of California at Berkeley.

He reacted to the old news about Bezos' new mansion with a tweet.

"Jeff Bezos' D.C. mansion will have: 2 elevators, 25 bathrooms, 1,006 light fixtures, A full movie theater

Amazon's Whole Foods cut health benefits for part-time workers less than 2 months ago. Tax the rich."

Reich went viral online, especially on Reddit wherein it drew 2,600 comments as of writing. Most were criticizing the lavish living of the world's richest man.

"Mansions are great if you hate your family," on redditor said. "If you have 'F--k you' money then why not," said another. "Eat the rich like in striping (sic) them of their political power so we can redistribute their wealth and bring them to justice when needed?"

But Bezos' mansion was being blasted as far back as April 2018. A disgruntled tweeter posted this comment about the mansion, "Who needs 25 bathrooms? WTF?" Another tweeted "maybe the Pope House should be renamed the Poop House. that's a lot of bathrooms."

Paging, Senator Bernie Sanders!
