Inside the luxurious 15-story nuclear bunker in Kansas, designed to protect the mega-wealthy from a potential apocalypse
The Survival Condo is a luxury nuclear bunker designed to protect the mega-rich against a potential apocalypse.

An underground plan of the bunker, which was built during the Cold War as a nuclear missile launch facility and was retrofitted with ten-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 has bulletproof doors and tunnels.
In addition to the unit purchase price, owners must spend $5,000 USD per month to cover living expenses – food, internet, electricity, and water.

There is a swimming pool in the common area of the nuclear bunker.
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 general store, library, classroom, general store, movie theater, swimming pool, rock climbing wall, and an aquaponics area to grow vegetables and fish. In the photo: the library and the seating area.
Founder Larry Hall said, “All of our people are self-made millionaires. They are very successful: doctors, engineers, lawyers, international businessmen… almost all of them have children. And they worry about the ‘what if’ scenario.’
