487

Amid global uncertainties, Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is building an extensive 1,400-acre compound in Hawaii, showcasing extreme preparedness.

Similar to a highly isolated retreat reminiscent of a setting found in a dystopian novel such as Leave the World Behind, evoking a sense of seclusion and detachment akin to the narrative’s atmospheric portrayal.

According to a recent investigation by Wired, this colossal compound in Kauai, named Koolau Ranch, is set to become Zuckerberg’s fortress, boasting more than a dozen structures encompassing a staggering 30 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms. 

Since August 2014, the total amount spent on land purchases alone has reached an astounding $170 million, with an extra projected $100 million set aside for building expenses.

At the heart of this expansive property will sit two mansions atop a survivalist bunker, spanning around 57,000 square feet and equipped with elevators, an industrial kitchen, and conference rooms.

Amid global uncertainties, Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is building an extensive 1,400-acre compound in Hawaii, showcasing extreme preparedness.

Doors within the residences are slated to be soundproofed and accessed via keypad, connected by a clandestine tunnel leading to a 5,000-square-foot subterranean shelter fortified behind a concrete-filled metal door. 

This bunker is designed to house living quarters, a mechanical room, and an escape hatch, emphasizing self-sufficiency with an 18-foot-tall water tank and provisions for energy and food production.

Despite its post-apocalyptic features, the compound promises comfort and luxury. Plans include a wellness center boasting a gym, multiple pools, a sauna, a steam room, and a tennis court. 

Additionally, visitors can explore 11 circular treehouses interconnected by rope bridges, offering a unique aerial experience.

Secrecy shrouds the project, with the property hidden behind a six-foot wall, monitored by constant security. Workers are bound by strict nondisclosure agreements, a rarity for private projects, according to local sources cited by Wired.

While Zuckerberg’s intentions for Koolau Ranch remain undisclosed, the compound has already hosted corporate events, hinting at its potential for broader exposure. As details of this opulent, fortified retreat emerge, it’s poised to be a blend of luxury and survivalism, leaving the world intrigued by the tech mogul’s futuristic haven in paradise.
