U2's technology-obsessed guitar virtuoso David Evans aka "The Edge" is in the middle of a mansion-building brouhaha in Malibu.

Evans is looking to build five, ridge-top homes on a property situated above Malibu, but the California Coastal Commission believes the project would violate state law saying "the development would ruin a wild area and scar hillsides visible from Pacific Coast Highway," reports ABC Local.

The multi-million construction, Evans claims, will be a green building project and that the mansions will blend into Malibu's natural landscape. The Coastal Commission will be addressing the issue at a meeting on Feb. 10.
