Pacific Business News reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has submitted a “farm-dwelling agreement” to the County of Kauai with the intention of building a house on his massive estate on the North Shore.  Back in 2015, Zuckerberg paid more than $200 million in total for hundreds of acres of land in the Waipake/Kilauea Farms area of the North Shore, including $135.5 million paid for the 737-acre beachfront estate called the “Kahuaina Plantation.”  There is currently no timetable for how long it will be until the home is constructed, but plans are in progress.

Zuckerberg has also recently made headlines due to the 6-foot-high rock wall he is constructing around the border of his property fronting the road.  Although the wall is deemed legal, and is a relatively common way for property owners to create sound barriers to reduce road noise, many people in the area have taken offense to it’s construction, stating that they do not feel the wall is “neighborly,” and in some cases it is restricting the ocean views from nearby properties.
