Residents of Kauai are not too happy with Facebook CEO and open border advocate, Mark Zuckerberg after he begins erecting a massive border wall around his property.
KILAUEA, KAUAI — For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”
Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear. Is important for the community since they consider this an invasion because many of them have properties around and this will really damage the view and lower the value of their properties, some of them are even considering finding a real estate service like vancouver realtor to sell their properties and get one in other part of the island.
Multiple attempts by TGI to contact Shawn Smith, former Falk Partners manager, who Hall says sold some of the $200 million, 700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, were unsuccessful Friday.
“(The crew) put some boards up, so you can see the future projection of the wall and what it will cut off,” Hall said. “It’s quite dramatic because you can see all the pasture land and ocean underneath the boards.” (read more)
