2016 Land Report 100: Jeff Bezos

No. 25 Jeff Bezos

400,000 acres (up 110,000 acres)
One of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs grew up spending summers on his grandfather’s 25,000-acre ranch outside of Cotulla, Texas. Decades later, the founder of Amazon started his own private aerospace company, Blue Origin, and set out in search of his own Cape Canaveral. He found it in Far West Texas and named his landholdings after explorers such as da Gama, Magellan, and Cabot. Gis April, Blue Origin launched a third successful flight of New Shepard with the same booster. Bezos has announced plans for Blue Origin to launch from the real Cape Canaveral by decade’s end.
