It’s the end of the world as we know it.
But you’ll be fine.
That’s the implicit message of the Luxury Survival Condo, which offers a “life assurance” policy to those who can afford it.
That policy comes in the form of a living unit in a decommissioned Kansas missile silo, along with survival training (mandatory), a five-year food supply per occupant, two floors of hydroponic gardens and an aquaculture system to farm fish, a swimming pool, an indoor shooting range, a dog “park”, a gym, a game arcade and a “minor surgery centre”, among other features.
It’s all encased in up to nearly three metres of special concrete, a “nuclear-hardened” space that plunges 14 stories underground.
A full-floor unit has about 170 square metres of living space, costs $3m (€2.4m) and can accommodate six to 10 people, according to the company.
A half-floor unit has about 80 square metres, costs $1.5m (€1.2m) and houses three to five people.
Don’t bother asking about a mortgage, though; you’ll need cash, because most banks won’t extend a loan “due to the nature of the project,” the company says.
The main condo complex is already sold out, but more than half of a second, under-construction complex is still available, including penthouse units that start at $4.5m (€3.6m).
“These units will be sold out well before they are completed,” the company warns, “so do not hesitate to get a unit under contract.”
