Palo Alto Board Rejects Zuckerberg’s Proposal To Tear Down Homes

PALO ALTO (CBS SF) – Members of Palo Alto’s Architectural Review Board are saying no to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckeberg’s plan to tear down neighboring homes he spent $30 million on.

Zuckerberg wanted to bulldoze the four homes around his residence in the Crescent Park neighborhood, replacing them with smaller properties.

The board voted down his proposal, saying the proposed homes are not designed for families, which is the city’s official vision for the neighborhood.

It’s now up to the city’s planning director to decide whether to let Zuckerberg carry out the plans for the property.
