Construction on Mark Zuckerberg’s $10 million ‘fixer-upper’ home aggravates neighbors
Residents near the Facebook co-founder’s new home in the Dolores Heights neighborhood of San Francisco are growing frustrated with the lack of parking spaces, earsplitting noise and constant disruptions.
Facebook notification: Mark Zuckerberg just checked in.
The social network’s CEO isn’t exactly friending people with the ongoing construction on his new $10 million home in San Francisco.
Neighbors say the noisy construction, constant traffic and frequent disruptions have upended the otherwise peaceful vibe of the hilly Dolores Heights neighborhood, according to local media.
The 30-year-old billionaire’s team distributed flyers outlining his construction plans for the 6-bedroom house he intends to share with his wife, Priscilla Chan, reported CBS San Francisco.
The handouts mentioned that four to five parking spaces would be blocked off so construction crews could move equipment to the area.
But, neighbor Trafton Bean says, people in the area noticed something else that does not seem “exactly kosher.”
Pople usually sit in parked cars near the home overnight to save additional parking spaces for construction vehicles that were not mentioned in the flyer, he told the CBS affiliate.
Most of the people saving the additional spots appear to be college students who were hired by Zuckerberg, according to Bean.
But it appears the nearly 50 reported construction workers who are on site every Saturday morning — and their deafening jackhammers — are the primary source of the neighbors’ grievances.
“It’s ear-splitting construction,”
