Jeff Bezos has announced that he would be moving from Seattle to Miami.
The moving news comes weeks after he snapped up a second mansion in Miami's "billionaire bunker."
The neighborhood is home to billionaires like Carl Icahn and Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
It looks like tech execs still love Miami.
After 29 years in Seattle, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced on Thursday that he and his fiancé Lauren Sanchez would soon be moving to Miami.
Bezos' announcement comes after the billionaire snapped up two massive mansions in Miami's "billionaire bunker" neighborhood over the past few months. The 'hood is on an artificial barrier island.
And as the name suggests, Bezos' new, exclusive neighborhood, is home to a handful of ultra-high net worth people, including billionaire investor Carl Icahn, former NFL quarterback Tom Brady, and musicians like Julio Iglesias.

'Billionaire bunker,' officially known as Indian Creek Island, is a heavily guarded man-made barrier island complete with its own police force.

The investor, who derives his wealth from an 89% stake in Icahn Enterprises, has a net worth of close to $6 billion, according to Bloomberg.
Former NFL quarterback Tom Brady purchased a $17 million plot with his then wife, supermodel Gisele Bünchden, in 2020.

Bunchden's colleague at Victoria's Secret, Adriana Lima, lived in the area until 2022, when she sold her four bedroom, four bathroom, waterfront mansion for $40 million, after acquiring it for just $9 million in 2009, according to real estate news site The Real Deal.

Car dealership tycoon Norman Braman bought an 8-bedroom house on the island for $3.9 million in 1991.
