The Survival Condo Project is a luxury condo complex housed in a former underground missile silo near Concordia, in Kansas, in the US. Located 15 stories below ground, it was designed to comfortably survive any apocalypse such as global health pandemics, cataclysmic weather, and terror attack, including a nuclear one. The missile silo was originally built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the 1960’s for the Atlas “F” missile, and there were 72 of them around the country. The walls of the silo, constructed out of epoxy-hardened concrete, are 9 feet thick and designed to survive a direct nuclear strike. The dome structure that covers the silo cap can withstand winds in excess of 500 mph.
The survival condos are designed to hold up to 70 people and have enough resources to keep them alive for years, as they wait for the dust to settle. A single condo in nearly 2,000-square-foot in size and cost anywhere from $1.5 to $3 million. Larry Hall, the brainchild behind the project, says that the condos are already sold out, but Mr Hall is currently working on a second.
The entrance to the condo has two doors that are 16,000 pounds eachRead more »
