Love of white elephants

Re: $4.4m building on market again 

The Polofesa loves building and buying “White Elephants!!!”

A white elephant is a possession that is useless or troublesome, especially one that is expensive to maintain or difficult to dispose of.

A white elephant is a burdensome possession that creates more trouble than it is worth. A white elephant is something that requires a lot of care and money and that gives little profit or enjoyment.
