Facebook owner, Mark Zuckerberg, is planning to build a waterside town, complete with supermarkets, hotels and homes for 10,000 of its employees and their families.
Renowned architect, Frank Gehry, has already produced a design and is set to handle the job.
The town, to be built on a 200-acre plot, will be called ‘Zee town’ and will have its own roads, as well as accommodation ranging from luxurious villas for high-paid executives to dormitories for trainees. It will also have ‘real streets’ for outsiders to visit.
Critics of the town say workers will be dependent on cars to get to the settlement, going against Facebook’s eco-friendly ethos but the company argues that it has alternative plans for transport.
