Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have purchased 110 acres of land on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, which was once a sugar plantation.

Most of the earthen Ka Loko Reservoir, which spilled hundreds of gallons of water in 2006 after its wall fell, killing seven people, including a pregnant lady, is situated on agricultural land.

The new property comes in addition to the couple’s 1,300-acre, $100 million luxury residence, which has caused detractors to accuse them of wanting to colonize’ the island.

According to the Star-Advertiser, the majority of Zuckerberg’s estate is classified agricultural and conservation area surrounding the couple’s Hawaiian home, Ko’olau Ranch.

In 2014, Zuckerberg paid $116 million in acquiring 707 acres of land, including the majority of Pila’a beach and the Kahu’aina Plantation.

On the now 1,400-acre estate, the couple aims to continue their involvement in farming, grazing, conservation, and wildlife protection, according to LaBolt.

According to the Garden Island, Zuckerberg’s estate includes a 6,100-square-foot home with a 16-car garage, offices, and the security headquarters for his $23 million security force.

The Ka Loko reservoir, which remained unfixed after the 2006 flooding catastrophe and is on the island’s handful of potential risk dams, is part of the latest addition to the property.

According to property documents, Zuckerberg’s Kaloko LLC purchased the 110 acres of land for $17 million in November from a firm run by the kamaaina Pflueger family.
