Mark Zuckerberg (39), founder of Facebook and head of technology company Meta, has a huge construction project underway in Hawaii. According to research by Wired, the Koolau Ranch will cost around €250 million. The complex contains several tree houses, a village with luxury villas and a huge underground bunker. Everything must be kept secret.
Zuckerberg bought the expansive property on the island of Kauai in 2014. Now a Wired investigation explains what Zuckerberg’s plans are for it. It looks like it will become one of the most expensive construction projects in modern history.
Twelve buildings will rise above the ground in the field. These two spacious, centrally located villas are connected by a group of eleven disc-shaped tree houses. The property will have at least 30 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms, as well as a gym, swimming pools, tennis court and sauna.
The underground villas are connected via a tunnel system that also provides access to a bunker where you can take shelter in the event of a terrible disaster.
The area of the underground bunker is 5,000 square metres, and it has an explosion-proof door made of steel and concrete, and a water tank measuring 17 meters by 6 metres. The unit is self-sufficient in electricity. There is a living and working area, and in case there is an escape hatch.
A two-metre-high wall will be built around the entire area to keep out prying eyes. After all, everything within those walls had to remain completely secret. That’s why everyone who works there must sign a confidentiality agreement. Several employees have reportedly already been fired after violating them, for example by sharing a photo on social media.
