Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg has commissioned the construction of a large underground bunker with a “blast-resistant door” to survive the apocalyptic age.
WIRED magazine obtained the bunker’s detailed planning documents through a series of public record requests. The documents revealed the existence of the project estimated to cost $270 million at the minimum.
For several years, Zuckerberg has expanded the range of his 1,500-acre Koolau Ranch in Kauai, Hawaii. On the surface, the ranch will have two central mansions connected by a tunnel linked to the underground bunker. However, the documents show that a “5,000-square-foot underground shelter” equipped with its “own energy and food supplies” is being constructed.

The self-sustaining compound would also generate its own power, with a water tank 55 feet wide and 18 feet tall responsible for the water supply. Food won’t be a problem as a variety of foodis already producedacross the compound through ranching and agriculture.
The partially completed compound incorporates more than a dozen buildings with at least 30 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms in total. The central two mansions will have a total floor area of 57,000 square feet comparable to a professional football field. It will also include multiple elevators, offices, conference rooms and an industrial-sized kitchen once finished.
In a nearby wooded area, 11 disk-shaped treehouses are planned, which will be linked by complicated rope bridges, permitting visitors to cross from one building to the next while staying among the treetops. A building on the other side of the main mansions will contain a full-size gym, pools, sauna, hot tub, cold plunge and tennis court.
The property is spotted with other guest houses and operations buildings. The scale of the project indicates that it will be more than a personal vacation home, with Zuckerberg already hosting two corporateeventsat the compound.
“Building permits put the price tag for the main construction at around $100 million, in addition to $170 million in land purchases, but this is likely an underestimate,”reportedWiredmagazine. Specifics of the “Zucker-bunker” under wraps
Brandi Hoffine Barr, spokeswoman for Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, refused to comment on the size or bunker-like qualities of the project. She only stated that the family see Koolau Ranch as their home.
However, the exorbitant amount involved in the project alongside the degree of secrecy involved is incomparable in the local construction industry. One official associated with the project’s location commented: “The only other time you see that is when you’re doing secure military installations. For a private project to have an NDA [non-disclosure agreement] attached to it is very rare.”
Other former contract workers at the ranch also attested to this, noting that everyone working there was bound by an NDA. Another worker said the “very strict” enforcement of NDAs made anyone on-site unwilling to “take the chance to get caught even taking a picture.” Barr also declined to comment when asked about this issue.
Zuckerberg is not alone in this trend, however. Other billionaires, such as Peter Thiel of PayPal and Palantir, have constructed or been planning doomsday bunkers in distant places worldwide.
There are numerous reasons why billionaires feel concerned about the future and are forced to make doomsday bunkers, some of which include spillover risks of the Russia-Ukraine war; probable regional conflict in the Middle East; collapsing Western cities into crime-ridden infernos; the wave of illegal immigrants across the West; and worsening financial situations in the West.
