It’s a bit sad, you have to admit, when someone can buy 700 acres of prime Hawaii real estate for $100 million dollars to build what is probably going to be a private estate. In this case, it is Facebook’s founder and CEO – Mark Zuckerberg that purchased the land, which includes an amazing beach.What do you think the chances are he’s going to set it up as a reservation for homeless Hawaiians? The land is zoned for up to eighty different homesites. Let’s see, 80 Hawaiian families, about 12 in a family! Make it happen Mark!
There actually IS a chance this won’t just be for his one mansion, his own piece of paradise, but I wouldn’t bet any money on it. Mark does give away money by the hundreds of millions of dollars to causes he and his wife believe in. But doubtful he’d buy such a large and prime piece of beach real estate to give away to the natives – right?
The land is located at: 7480 Koolau Road, Kilauea, Kauai, Hawaii.
This is not Mark’s first Hawaii real estate transaction. He previously bought several high-priced units in a luxury high-rise in Ala Moaana called “ONE Ala Moana” according to a Pacific Business News source.
Anyway, I don’t know what I’m doing commenting on Hawaii news. I don’t enjoy the news generally, but I just saw this and thought that there was the slightest chance the Zucks’ would do an amazing good deed and hand over some pristine property and homes to homeless Hawaiians on Kauai.
I see this is an old article from 2014, however since then the Zukerberg’s have bought hundreds of acres more and have more than 1,300 acres of the most beautiful lands in Hawaii in their possession. I am a Hawaiian and I can tell you, most of us are terribly upset that this outsider can come to our homeland and buy (?) our lands for crumbs! Absolutely appalling! The State of Hawaii will REGRET selling (?) these lands to Zukerberg. How did they even come up with a price tag?
Really good questions. Who was the previous owner? Why did they decide to sell? Was it a fair price? If it was sold for “crumbs”, why didn’t someone else buy it for a higher price?
Hi, my name is Kimberly, I am an Lpn here in Oklahoma. I’m wanting to move to Hawaii and make a life style change. Would I be able to find a job as an Lpn in home care? I have 2 children, how hard is it to make a good income to take care of them? Thanks Kim
I don’t know how much LPN’s can make in a home care setting, but I wouldn’t guess all that much unless you find the right client. To think that you’re going to support yourself and two kids on a salary that is maybe around $40,000 or less, I wouldn’t attempt it on any of the islands. That’s just me. Some people would do it and make it work. I may be way off on the salary, I’d suggest looking through Craigslist daily for a while and see what pops up. In the public schools racism is rampant, and you might want to consider private schools. Hope that helps a bit. Aloha, Vern
