Plans unveiled for Mark Zuckerberg’s huge $260M hidden bunker on secluded island

Plans unveiled for Mark Zuckerberg’s huge $260M hidden bunker on secluded island

The construction is being kept from the public eye by walls and security guards.

Last year, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, announced his plans to build one of the world's biggest houses in US history with his wife Priscilla Chan.

On the northeast side of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, the Meta CEO will call his 1,400-acre plot of land home.

However, the announcement has been met with a lot of backlash from the community and proactive groups. For example, a 2020 petition called ‘Stop Mark Zuckerberg from Colonizing Kauai’ collected over one million signatures.

Kauai is the oldest and smallest of the four main Hawaiian Islands and home to a close-knit community of around 73,000 people.

A spokesperson for Zuckerberg denied the negative impact of the decision and explained: 'Under their care, less than one percent of the overall land is developed with the vast majority dedicated to farming, ranching, conservation, open spaces and wildlife preservation.

'This includes a large cattle ranching program, organic ginger and turmeric farms, a nursery dedicated to native plant restoration, and partnering with Kauai's foremost wildlife conservation experts to protect native birds and other endangered or threatened wildlife populations.'

Although the construction for the mansion is currently underway, it's all being kept very under wraps and out of the public eye. A 6-foot wall blocks any peeping Toms from the nearby road and security guards patrol the entrance gate and surrounding beaches on their ATVs.

But some reports have revealed what's to be included in the $260 million estate.

The property known as Koolau Ranch will contain a separate building on the other side of the main mansions, including a full-size gym, pools, sauna, hot tub, cold plunge, and tennis court.

'The property is dotted with other guesthouses and operations buildings,' the report added.

Additionally, the total floor area is said to be 'comparable to a professional football field', containing multiple elevators, offices, conference rooms, and an industrial-sized kitchen.

The Ranch wouldn't be a tech billionaire's investment without its protection against an apocalypse in the form of a subterranean, doomsday bunker. Packed with its own grown food and water supply - escape hatch and blast-proof doors, the bunker is perfect for any alien or zombie outbreaks and can be reached from the tunnel between the two huge mansions.

In terms of getting around the enormous spread of land, the nearby wooded area will contain a 'web of 11 disk-shaped tree houses which will be connected by intricate rope bridges, allowing visitors to cross from one building to the next while staying among the treetops.'
