Mark Zuckerberg is building a massive bunker in Hawaii.

It’ll cost the CEO of Meta at least $260 million, and we now know a bit more about it.

Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan purchased an abandoned sugar plantation on Kauai, Hawaii’s oldest island, back in 2021.

The property spans 110 acres but rather than building yet another mansion for himself, Zuck wants to build a doomsday bunker, which is apparently the latest flex for billionaires.

A spokesperson for Zuckerberg said the compound will include a lot of features to protect and improve the surrounding environment.

Zuck also partnered up with Kauai’s wildlife conservation experts to protect endangered species in the area, including birds.

The compound will also incorporate at least a dozen buildings, with 30 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms in total, a main mansion, office space and conference rooms, and “an industrial-sized” kitchen.

It’ll also feature pools, gyms, a sauna, and a tennis court.

There’ll be a treehouse and rope bridges, too.

Furthermore, the bunker will be made of metal and “filled in with concrete” to soundproof it, and it’ll be entirely self-sustainable.

It’s unclear what Zuckerberg actually wants to use this bunker for.

Doomsday bunkers are a thing now, and there are companies that are even selling multi-million dollar condos inside these bunkers as we speak.

Obviously, Zuck is also running out of things to spend money on.

He spends a good chunk of cash on personal security and private jets, and he may or may have not caught the ‘watch bug’ after spotting Anant Ambani’s Richard Mille at his wedding.

But you can’t really spend $260 million on a watch – not even if it’s a Richard Mille.

You can, as it turns out, spend $260 million on a bunker.
