Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse With These Luxury Survival Condos
As we've seen with real-life zombie Rudy Eugene, the man who was killed by cops after he was caught gnawing on a homeless man's face, a future where we are surrounded by flesh-eating monsters could soon be a reality. Thankfully, a company has turned a formerly used defense site in Kansas into a premium underground luxury condominium property. Called Survival Condo, the project promises security for its residents like no other, and despite it's hefty price tag per unit, it's nearly sold out.
Built in the 1960s by the US Army Corps of Engineers as a missile base, developer Larry Hall took over the 174-foot-deep site and went through years of cleaning up before finally receiving a "clean bill of health" from the Environmental Protection Agency. The builders claim the project has the "advantages of letting the members own a piece of history, the coolness of a missile base, the protection of a nuclear hardened bunker, and the features of a luxury condo." While that sounds awesome indeed, know that a full-floor unit costs $2 million.
If you can't afford that, you can opt for a half-floor layout for $1 million. The full-floor layouts have approximately 1,820 square feet of living space, while the half-floor layouts have approximately 900 square feet of living space.
Included in each residential unit is a five-year supply of freeze-dried and dehydrated survival food per person. Why? Because Hall says these condos are for people who need "a safe place for the increasing number of threats that are occurring." He cites global climate change, fear of terrorism, possible economic collapse, the solar cycle and possible loss of power grid, possible pandemics, civil unrest, and food shortages as the many (many) possibilities that could lead to an apocalypse. (Don't forget face-eating zombies.)
The website claims all seven residential levels are sold out with only one half-floor unit left. Zombies withstanding, we're sure there are plenty of Americans with deep pockets who don't mind investing in such a novelty project. If not for the zombie apocalypse, at least to throw wild parties without having the cops come by to shut you down for noise violations.
