Survival Condo: Bunker-Apartment in the US

If you were looking for a totally indestructible shelter for surviving the approaching 2012-doomsday scenario, a converted nuclear ballistic missile silo could have been a good option, but sadly this particular model is completely SOLD OUT. Retailing for just $2 million per apartment, the Survival Condo in Kansas, is a 14-story shelter with enough food to feed 70 people indefinitely. It also comes with a fitness center, a bar, a pool and a movie theatre showing videos of how the Earth looked before it all went down in flames.

Located within the Swiss Alps, Angebauter Tarnrucksack by Atelier-f is a solid construction, boasts a green roof and beautiful views of the mountains (we’re not sure how well these will hold post-Apocalypse), and is a true doomsday escape for the most discerning artist.
