Luxury missile silo condos promise more than mere survival in apocalypse
It’s the end of the world as we know it.
But you’ll be fine.
That’s the implicit message of the Luxury Survival Condo, which offers a “life assurance” policy to those who can afford it.
That policy comes in the form of a living unit in a decommissioned Kansas missile silo, along with survival training (mandatory), a five-year food supply per occupant, two floors of hydroponic gardens and an aquaculture system to farm fish, a swimming pool, an indoor shooting range, a dog “park,” a gym, a game arcade and a “minor surgery center,” among other features.
It’s all encased in up to 9 feet of special concrete, a “nuclear-hardened” space that plunges 14 stories underground.
A full-floor unit has about 1,800 square feet of living space, costs $3 million and can accommodate six to 10 people, according to the company. A half-floor unit has about 900 square feet, costs $1.5 million and houses three to five people.
Don’t bother asking about a mortgage, though; you’ll need cash, because most banks won’t extend a loan “due to the nature of the project,” the company says.
The main condo complex is already sold out, but more than half of a second, under-construction complex is still available, including penthouse units that start at $4.5 million. “These units will be sold out well before they are completed,” the company warns, “so do not hesitate to get a unit under contract.”
You never know what could happen.
