The future is by definition unpredictable. Even science works on past patterns and habits, and only a high probability is offered as a guarantee of continuity.
In the end, things will go wrong.
That’s why Survival Condo turned to a a secret place in Kansas, where it turned a rocket silo into a luxury survival resort that could house 75 people for five years.
Survival Condo’s accommodation and amenities are first-class, with features such as 50,000 gallons (almost 230,000 liters) pool and spa area, cinema, lounge, training base, indoor shooting range, medical facility, rock climbing wall and even a dog park for hairy companions of the apocalypse.
Needless to say, staying in this safe haven would be a luxury that many might never want to leave.
According to developer press release, one resident said that “the same quality apartment in New York would cost me the same, if not more per square foot and you will get peace of mind with that.” But this is not the luxury that customers find most attractive, he told IE developer Larry Hall. Impermeable security is the main advantage of the project offer.
The idea to build these retro-futuristic apartments comes from the way government projects have modernized bunkers for maximum comfort, longevity and security, Hall said. “I saw that the government was spending a lot of money on both new bunkers and upgrading old ones. I thought they knew something I didn’t, “Hall said.
If you are wondering how safe these apartments are, be sure that they can withstand even the most powerful explosions. “The original structure was a nuclear-hardened Atlas ‘F’ missile silo that contained an intercontinental ballistic missile. The facility was designed to withstand a 20-kiloton explosion within half a mile of its location,” Hall explained. This is a big boom.
The apartments range from $ 500,000 to $ 3 million and are guaranteed to be durable on Judgment Day. “Because the original facility was designed as a nuclear-hardened facility, our structural engineers modified the facility to maintain similar structural strength,” Hall told IE.
What doomsday scenarios are buyers afraid of? Hall says there are several different types, including the potential for “pandemics, terrorism, global weather changes that lead to food shortages, global economic collapse and volcanoes.”
Hall emphasizes that its buyers go beyond the stereotypes surrounding rappers and “survival addicts” who have seen a lot of negative reflection in other verticals. For Hall, stakeholders include successful, educated and professional individuals who see the purchase as choosing a peace of mind mentality only if man-made or natural disasters cause a major social catastrophe.
This goes beyond the average preparation kit, but given the chaotic series of events we have seen in just a few short years – from a global pandemic to a capital uprising and growing signs of possible conflict between great nations of the world – it is difficult to deny the attractiveness of the most modern shelter that will keep you safe. Because if the sky falls and the world ends, your bank account will probably fall last among the main priorities.
