Everybody wants to know why Mark Zuckerberg is building top-secret $270m Hawaii compound with bunker

One thing’s for certain, Mark Zuckerberg is leaving no stone unturned making sure he’s prepared if/when doomsday comes.

Apparently, the Meta CEO is building himself a top-secret, 1,400-acre compound in Hawaii.

According to documents obtained by Wired, the Facebook founder has already dropped $170 million on land in Kauai, and will fork out another $100 million in building costs.

It’s quite surprising really, considering Mark Zuckerberg has a car collection that’s actually incredibly humble for a billionaire.

But rumor has it, the sprawling compound – called Koolau Ranch – will comprise at least 30 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms, divided among more than a dozen different structures.

At the center of the compound will be two mansions sitting atop a survivalist bunker.

Totaling 57,000 square feet, the two mansions will include elevators, an industrial kitchen, and conference rooms.

Plans apparently show that the vast majority of doors throughout the homes will be soundproofed and operated via keypad.

What’s more, the two properties will be joined by a secret tunnel that leads to a 5,000-square-foot underground bunker that’s protected by a metal door filled with concrete.

This isn’t your average bunker, though.

It’ll have its own living space, a mechanical room, and an escape hatch.

Oh, and there will be a wellness center that includes a full-size gym, multiple pools, a sauna, a steam room, and a tennis court.

In order to be self-sufficient, it’ll have an 18-foot-tall water tank, and the ability to produce its own energy and food supplies, too.

But, the cherry on top has to be the compound’s 11 circular treehouses that will be joined by rope bridges, so visitors can climb one treehouse to the next without stepping foot on the ground.

If you happen to visit Kauai and plan to get a sneak peak of the compound – think again.

For starters, it’s hidden from the road, tucked behind a six-foot wall, and monitored by round-the-clock security guards.

Understandably, due to the scope and nature of the project, Mark Zuckerberg has everyone working on the property sign a strict nondisclosure agreement.

As to whether Mark Zuckerberg will use Koolau Ranch as a part-time or full-time family retreat – who knows – but despite losing more than half of his wealth, work on the compound is well underway.

Wired reported that he’s already hosted two different corporate events at the compound, so its secrets may not stay so secret for long.
