Michael Dell has gone from a dorm room on Guadalupe Street to high rises and luxurious penthouses. It’s fitting for the former University of Texas at Austin student who is now CEO of Dell Technologies. Just last month, the company announced a record quarter with $26.1 billion in revenue.
So while Dell may keep his Texas ties with a residence in Austin, he’s also made himself at home on the east coast and outside the continental U.S. Here are the properties of the occasionally local man who may someday be a trillionaire.
Eight bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a gym and a lap pool are just a few of the traits in this massive, nearly 33,000-square-foot home. But the home, a 20-mile drive from Round Rock where the company is based, is even larger when you consider that Dell and his wife, Susan, own land adjoining the property for a total of about 119 acres.
That’s not all for his Austin ownership. He also has a house a few miles away that’s been dubbed 6D Ranch, for the six members of his family.
Here, Dell reportedly has a contract for a penthouse in what will soon be Boston’s tallest residential building: the Four Seasons Private Residences One Dalton Street. It’s one of three penthouses with direct elevator access, fireplaces both inside and outside and more than 7,200 square feet of living space. The residences boast nearby Dalton Park in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood for owners to enjoy fresh air and seasonal greenery.
Central Park views and nearly 11,000 square feet make for a $100.47 million purchase. The 1,000-foot condo tower is on Manhattan’s West 57th street and has six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Known as One57, it has elegant bedrooms and smart kitchens equipped with custom cabinetry and integrated appliances. It also comes with the perks of being above the Park Hyatt New York. For example, there are in-residence dining and catering services that can be arranged at a moment’s notice.
Dell’s home in the residential community of Kukio has island views of Maui and lots to explore. In what’s been labeled Hawaii’s most exclusive neighborhood, Dell has the flagship residence of 18,500 square feet. His next-door neighbor is Paul Hazen, the CEO of Wells Fargo, and it’s known as a billionaire getaway. With a nearby golf course, archaeological reserve and the fresh air of the Kona coast, we can see what attracts them.

Austin radio icon John Aielli, whose fearless and improvisational approach delighted and polarized listeners for over 50 years, died Sunday at 76.
"He was such a joy to work with, and so important to what the stations have become," KUT/X General Manager Debbie Hiott said in a message to staff.
West Riverside is getting a lavish new restaurant offering coastal European food and rooftop views of Lady Bird Lake.
Located on the roof of The Loren residences at Lady Bird Lake, Nido, 1211 W. Riverside Dr., is slated to open in late September 2022 and serve breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner and a full bar.

Using an “ingredient-first mentality,” a release said the restaurant sources locally whenever possible, highlighting Fredricksburg peaches, local citrus, beef, native hardwood and coal from the Hill Country. Nido will also offer food that is friendly to vegan or restrictive diets.

“Guests can expect an untraditional, yet classic take on dishes, all meant for sharing,” McDonald said. “From the moment of arrival, diners perched above Lady Bird Lake will take in an exclusive view of the immediate surroundings and taste their way through the local, regional and international flavors and techniques that have shaped our menu and overall dining experience.”
From eight floors up, guests will be able to dine on signature dishes like foie gras and maple stuffed chicken wings; braised lamb breast with milk jam and herb salad; Ricotta Gnudi with blistered cherry tomatoes and nicoise olives; and Grilled Dry-aged Wagyu with aligot potatoes.
