Survival Condo Nearly Finished but Not in Time for "Doomsday"

By  | 

Many people across the globe believed the world would end Friday, December 21. We found one man who isn't buying into the hype, but is investing millions into a facility that will one day serve that purpose.

"As you can see, we are putting in the appliances right now. The cabinets are all in," said Larry Hall.

His $14 million survival condo in Northcentral Kansas is nearly finished. From the ground down, crews have been turning an old missile silo into this 14-story condominium. When it's complete, up to 70 people will live there.

"What they've seen so far exceeded their expectations," said Hall.

The state-of-the-art facility will cost you $2 million for an 1,800 square-foot condo. The building is furnished with a bar, movie theater, gym, classroom and a swimming pool.

Amenities are a top priority, and so is security. An eight-person security defense force will be on-call to protect the facility and everyone inside.

"You don't know who's out there and you don't know what their intents are, so they want to be secure and that's what we are here for," said an anonymous team leader.

Part of that, is hiding their identity. They've already dealt with someone breaking through the fence and shooting at the building.

"The families that pass this down to their future generation, they're going to have some place to go during whatever disaster moment there might be," said the team leader.

But Hall didn't build it for the December 21 "Doomsday".

"We don't have people that are panicking or freaking out like it's Doomsday or the end of the world," said Hall. "Most of these people are worried about economic collapse or storms like what happened with Sandy."

He knows there's a demand for it. Several people are on a waiting list.

"Whether it's nuclear fallout from a dirty bomb or a pandemic or civil unrest, we've got a solution for that," said Hall.

And he's showing no plans of slowing. Hall expects to have three more survival condos under construction by March.
