What: Luxury survival bunker penthouse unit How much: Starting at US$4.5 million Why: We’ve all stopped making fun of doomsday preppers. When we see the supermarket shelves are empty of toilet paper, sanitiser and flour, we can’t help wondering whether the joke is on us. Fortunately, some veteran preppers have been busy doing what they do best: prepping. If you’re new on the scene, worrying about an impending nuclear war, zombie apocalypse, killer comet or “just” our current global pandemic and the protests across America protesting police brutality and systemic racism, you might be relieved to hear that there are plenty of survival bunkers and fallout shelters to protect you, your family and even your pets. For the Survival Condo Project located at an undisclosed site in Kansas in the United States, no specific qualifications or skills are required to join its luxury shelter; all you need is plenty of cash handy. Would this luxury billionaire bunker survive a zombie apocalypse? For US$4.5 million, you can land yourself a luxury penthouse unit in one of Survival Condo’s former Atlas missile silos, built by the Army Corps of Engineers. The superstructure, once used to house and launch intercontinental ballistic missiles, was designed to survive a direct nuclear strike. After a massive renovation project, it now covers 54,000 square feet of underground, protected space. Most impressive is its monolithic dome top, made of hardened concrete measuring up to nine feet thick and capable of protecting residents from winds in excess of 800km/h. (For comparison, 1961’s Typhoon Nancy, considered one of the most powerful tropical cyclones in history, was a mere 345km/h at its peak.) Survival Condo says that the project is able to sustain 75 people for more than five years, as the silo is fitted with its own hydroponic and aquaponic farm and well-stocked with dehydrated food supplies. The luxury penthouse unit takes up 3,600 square feet over two levels. Customisation is more than possible, but the default amenities and furnishings are definitely agreeable: owners can enjoy Kohler bath fixtures, jetted jacuzzi tub, home automation system and stainless steel kitchen appliances in each condo while sheltering from the apocalypse. In addition to accessing a survival training programme and a five-year food reserve, residents are welcome to use the community facilities, including a cinema, first aid centre, and dog park (yes, you can bring your pets). Scared of Covid-19? 5 celebrities who are preparing for the world to end For stay-at-home (bunker) workouts, the project is equipped with a gym, an indoor shooting range, a rock climbing wall and a beautiful indoor resort-style pool which is 75 feet long. It also has a waterfall and a slide, which would serve as good distractions for the kids. Other amenities include an arcade, ping pong table, spa and classroom for students. survivalcondo.com The company says the silo’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical air filtration system is capable of filtering pathogens like Covid-19, providing some timely reassurance. Penthouse aside, other units range from US$1.2 million (HK$9.3 million) to US$2.4 million (HK$18.6 million) and are designed for survival newcomers and hardened preppers alike. With the first project sold out, contracts are now being accepted for a second condo. Want more stories like this? Sign up here . Follow STYLE on Facebook , Instagram , YouTube and Twitter .
