The ‘Survival Condo’ is a luxury nuclear bunker designed to protect the mega-rich from a potential apocalypse. While some of the units have already been sold to members of the 1% hoping for a getaway plan should doomsday happen, there are still units in all three types of floor plans available, with prices starting at $1.5 million and going up to $4.5 million for a full-floor unit.

An underground floor plan of the bunker, which was built during the Cold War as a nuclear missile launch facility and is retrofitted with nine-foot-thick reinforced concrete walls. The bunker descends nine floors and is accessible by a high-speed elevator.
Now, it is guarded by security and surrounded by CCTV cameras and armored trucks and boasts bulletproof doors and tunnels.
As well as the price of buying a unit, owners must spend $5,000 USD a month to cover the living expenses – food, internet, electricity and water.

The underground shelter, in Kansas, in America, started life as a Cold War missile silo. Entrepreneur Larry Hall bought it in 2008.

The fortified condominium shelter features a shop, library, classroom, general store, cinema, swimming pool, rock climbing wall, and an aquaponics area to grow vegetables, and fish. Pictured: The library and seating area.
Founder Larry Hall said: ‘All of our people are self-made millionaires. 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.’
