    the plans of sb's

    I read this sentence in a McGraw-Hill's grammar book:
    These are the plans of the new architect’s.

    My question is: Is the blue 'the' necessary to the sentence? What's the difference with and without this 'the'?

    Thank you in advance.

    (On the same page is: John and Mike are cousins of theirs.)

    "These are the plans..." is correct. The new architect's what?
