Mark Zuckerberg Is Building a Wall Around His Hawaiian Estate

 

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly building a six-foot-high wall around his $100 million property on Kauai, the smallest of Hawaii’s four largest islands. Kauai’s waves are a favorite for surfers and its cliff and valley jungle environment is renowned for its beauty.

West Hawaii Today reports complains from Kauai resident Gy Hall “The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense, ” he said,  “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall is about six-feet tall and its projected length and completion are unclear.

According the report a neighbor Thomas Beebe, thinks the wall is “attractive.”

“I find that it greatly enhances the natural beauty of the land, appropriately makes use of local materials and serves as a tasteful reminder of an ancient method of defining boundaries, ” he wrote in a text message.

Miles Radcliffe-Trenner, a spokesman for Zuckerberg’s Kauai property operations, statement said: “Rock walls like this one being built along the roadway are routinely used as sound barriers to reduce highway and road noise, and that is its primary purpose. The sound barrier follows all regulated rules and regulations by the county and our entire team remains committed to ensuring that any development respects the local landscape and environment and is considerate of neighbors.”

Kauai’s waves are a favorite for surfers, including Zuckerberg, and its cliff and valley jungle environment is renowned for its beauty.
