Missile Silo Converted into Luxury Survival Resort Nears Completion
The Survival Condo project is an aggressive undertaking by Engineer and Software Developer Larry Hall to convert an Atlas Missile Silo into a fully self-contained and secure “Luxury Survival Condo and Resort” for extended off-grid living.
With a year-end completion date, developer acquires second Atlas Missile Silo to begin development on site #2.
The Survival Condo project is an aggressive undertaking by Engineer and Software Developer Larry Hall to convert an Atlas Missile Silo into a fully self-contained and secure “Luxury Survival Condo and Resort” for extended off-grid living in the event of a major disaster or emergency. After several years of planning and development, the facility is nearing completion with a year-end “move-in” date expected for the residents. Larry says that his clients are not your typical “survival nuts” as portrayed in the media, rather they are successful, educated and well-to-do individuals who simply want peace of mind in the event of a natural or manmade disaster.
This first complex has been called an engineering marvel and resides in what Larry says is one of the strongest manmade structures ever created; a nuclear hardened bunker with walls as thick as 9 and ½ feet made from epoxy hardened concrete that was built back in 1960 to house and protect the Atlas Nuclear Missiles.
Even though the facility is designed to withstand a nuclear blast, Larry states that the main concerns that he and his clients share is actually the end result of any one of many potential manmade or natural disasters, and that is the break-down of society and total civil unrest. In the event of a major disaster, economic collapse or whatever the future may hold, there is one common concern that Larry and his tenants share, and that is the ability to protect themselves and their families when the government is no longer able to do so.
The actual facility is located at a secret location in Kansas, and though his residents live in many different states, all have redundant travel contingencies in the case of a major catastrophe or emergency.
The living quarters and amenities are nothing short of what you would expect in a luxury resort, with features such as a 50,000 gallon pool and spa area, movie theater, lounge, exercise facility, indoor shooting range, medical facility, rock climbing wall, and even a dog park for the furry companions. One of the residents stated “The same quality of condo in New York would have cost me the same, if not more per square foot and you get peace of mind with this.”
Although Larry would not disclose the specific details, he does say that the facility comes with full military grade security that encompasses both lethal and non-lethal measures to ensure the safety of the residents and the facility no matter what the threat.
The first silo has been completely sold out, though we are told that there is possibly one half-floor unit that may come available due to unspecified circumstances. The second silo project is starting construction in January of 2013 and both half-floor and full-floor units of approximately 900 sq. ft. and 1820 sq. ft. are available for sale now with a respective cost of $1.5 million for a half floor and $3 million for a full floor unit.
