During the Cold War in the early sixties, the US government built 72 missile silos to protect an extremely powerful nuclear warhead. They didn’t use them for decades, however, so officials destroyed most of them. That being said, a few of these bunkers remain, including one that has been converted into a three million dollar doomsday condo.
A Look Inside the 3 Million Dollar Doomsday Condo
The exact location of this doomsday condo remains a secret, but we do know that it is somewhere north of Wichita, Kansas. The massive underground structure is fifteen stories deep with walls that are nine feet thick- enough to withstand a nuclear impact. The entire space is large enough to house 75 people and has enough resources to sustain them for five years.
This structure, however, is nothing like what probably comes to your mind when you think of a doomsday bunker. It is actually quite luxurious, and contains all of the following:
- Redundant electric sources, so there will always be enough power, no matter what happens.
- Common areas with TVs, couches, pool tables, etc.
- A full WholeFoods-style grocery store.
- A Movie Theatre
- Fully-furnished individual condos for each family with kitchens, laundry, large bedrooms, and closets.
- An indoor pool.
- A rock-climbing wall.
- A gym.
- A medical facility.
- A gun range
- An aquaponic and hydroponic farming system
- A dog park
- A games room
- A library 
The Man Behind the Plan
The owner of the facility is a man named Larry Hall. He is a former government contractor, property developer, and a doomsday prepper. He also has a master’s degree in business. He’s designed the weapons database for an air force surveillance plane and constructed hardened data centers.
In many ways, he is the perfect person to take on a project such as this. Thus, designing luxury doomsday condos for the uber-wealthy became his new schtick.
The US government spent fifteen million dollars building this particular silo in the sixties, and Hall bought it for three hundred thousand dollars. He had heard about the country’s wealthiest people burying doomsday bunkers beneath their vast estates and knew there was a market there.
Hall wanted to be certain that his bunker could sustain people for a long period of time. Thus, his team spent a cool twenty million dollars building this massive underground fortress.
