Construction Of Wall Around Mark Zuckerberg's Hawaii Propery Is Making Neighbors Unhappy

A couple of years ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acquired over 700 acres of oceanfront property in beautiful Kauai, Hawaii.

In recent weeks, construction crews began building what appears to be a 6-foot wall on the massive expanse of land, and the neighbors are less than pleased.

One noted that the barrier completely blocks the area's view of the water, something residents have long enjoyed.

Another expressed concern that the lovely breeze coming off of the water will not be able to make it past the obstruction.

In describing the wall, locals have used words including 'monstrosity' and 'oppressive.'

Many have attempted to get in touch with Zuckerberg in hopes of discussing the wall and the impact it may have on the community at large, but their efforts have been unsuccessful.

One area resident said: "All he needs to do is take it down... That's all we're asking."

According to Gizmodo the property includes its own beach as well as what used to be a sugarcane plantation.

A spokesman from the wall building project 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."

Adding: "Our entire team remains committed to ensuring that any development respects the local landscape and environment and is considerate of neighbors."
