Inside the Luxury “Doomsday Bunker” for the Mega Rich

Headlines Health Technology U.S.

A company in Kansas has built an oasis for the uber-wealthy to hide out in while the above-ground world deals with pandemics and severe civil unrest.  It’s called Survival Condo, and it’s several floors of luxury amenities buried 200 feet underground. The exact location is kept hidden but the approximate area is several hundred miles from Kansas City.

Survival Condo is a retro-fitted Cold War nuclear silo that houses several floors of underground condos which can withstand a 12-kiloton nuclear bomb.

Prices for condos start at $1 million, plus a $2,500 per month condo fee to cover expenses such as food, ammo, electricity and internet connectivity.

“All of our people are self-made millionaires,” said Larry Hall, the owner of the Survival Condo. “They’re very successful: doctors, engineers, lawyers, international business people… almost all of them have children. And they’re concerned about the ‘what if’ scenario.”

The complex houses a pool, cinema, gym and library, as well as an infirmary and general store.
