Kansas Missile Silo's Luxury Condos Sell Out
If you're hoping to snag an ultra-secure underground luxury condo equipped to make it through the apocalypse, join the waiting list. An abandoned missile-silo-turned-housing-complex in Kansas with eight $2 million units has sold out.
Developer Larry Hall has been remodeling the Cold War-era Atlas-F missile silo in north-central Kansas for the last several years
. He made the conversion "to have a safe place for the increasing number of threats that are occurring," Hall said. One unit is finished, and the other seven are expected to be completed within the next few months
The lucky owners of these residences will get to ride out the apocalypse in style. Each 1,820-square-foot condo is encased in epoxy-hardened walls (to guard against nuclear attacks and earthquakes) and has access to its own off-grid electricity. They also come equipped with stainless steel GE appliances, Kohler bath fixtures, a Jacuzzi and an LED big-screen TV. Feeling walled in, being up to 200 feet underground? The units come with "'simulated view' windows
" that give you an artificial view of the outdoors, with changing light levels based on the time of day.

Besides the eight residential floors, the 15-floor work-in-progress will also include
a full-size pool, a spa, a fitness room, a library and a movie theater. The site also has its own state-of-the-art hydroponic and aquaculture center, providing organic produce and fish. And don't worry about zombies: The silo has a military-grade security system.
If all this sounds enticing, sorry about your luck. According to the condo website
, there is already a waiting list in case one of the units opens up.
