Billionaires now have the buying power to check nuclear apocalypses off their list of things to not worry about. With the Luxury Survival Condo, not only can they buy their ticket to survival from doomsday events, but they can also weather those disastrous times in comfort and luxury. Located beneath a not-so-glam rural prairie near Concordia, Kansas, the Luxury Survival Condo is a former Atlas missile silo transformed into a doomsday-ready underground shelter with $3 million condos outfitted with perks like a spa, dog park, and hydroponic vegetable gardens.
The developer Larry Hall bought the former nuclear missile site in 2008 and finished renovations for the first Luxury Survival Condo bunker in 2012. The complex houses seven 1,820-square-foot floors of full and half-floor units that cost between $1.5 million and $3 million, and can accommodate up to 75 people. Every resident is provided with a five-year supply of freeze-dried and dehydrated food that’s supplemented with hydroponic vegetable gardens and an aquaculture system.
The structure is wrapped in 9-feet-thick concrete walls and is topped with a large earth dome that caps two 16,000-pound armored doors that can withstand winds of up to 500 mph. In addition to the seven residential floors, the 174-foot-deep renovated silo houses many amenities including a medical center, indoor pool, 17-person movie theater, classroom, library, gym, and even a little jail. An elevator and stair system connects the floors together.
Although it’s plugged in to the electrical grid, the Luxury Survival Condo also uses alternative energy sources such as its wind turbine, two diesel generators, and a battery bank. It is also equipped with its own water supply with a 75,000-gallon reserve tank and water treatment facilities, as well as an air filtration system. Although affluent buyers have already snapped up all the available spaces in the first complex, there are still spaces available in the second, under-construction Luxury Survival Condo, which is slated for completion by the end of 2016.
