People often place actual, real, provable, and factual things that “sound” crazy into the “conspiracy theory” category. One of the most common things that are, in fact, very real, yet often dismissed as existing in the same realm as chemtrails and FEMA camps are underground bunkers for the rich.
We’ve all heard the stories: multi-millionaires and billionaires who have spent massive amounts of money to buy or build homes, towns, condos, even cities far beneath the Earth in case of some nuclear invasion, alien takeover, or whatever.
But… guess what? There are many millionaires who openly talk about their luxury underground mansions – and they have been doing so for years.
Back in 2012, The Huffington Post reported on the super-rich and their bunkers for “the apocalypse”:
Most people have too much on their plates to worry about what will happen when the world ends.
But then there are those who have too much money not to.
Four buyers have already spent about $7 million on luxurious doomsday-safe condos built in a Cold War-era missile shaft below a Kansas prairie, according to the AFP.
The cylindrical underground building not only includes condo space, but its developer is also adding an indoor farm, pool, movie theater, a stockpile of five years worth of dry food, and space for a medical center and school, the AFP reports.
Its inhabitants should be well protected. The condo building, which extends 174 feet underground, hosts concrete walls that are nine feet thick, according to The Daily Mail. The shape of a silo, Forbes adds, also makes it an even more ideal hiding place.
The Wall Street Journal even listed a “For Sale” ad about this same bunker “condo building” in 2014:
Affluent buyers worried about doomsday are snapping up well-appointed bunkers built in a former missile silo.
When Tyler Allen agreed to fork over $3 million in cash for a luxury condominium near Concordia, Kan., he wasn’t attracted by the indoor swimming pool, 17-seat movie theater, or hydroponic vegetable garden.
The real selling point of the 1,820-square-foot apartment: It will be buried 174 feet underground in a decommissioned missile silo sturdy enough to withstand a nuclear attack.
Mr. Allen, a 45-year-old Orlando, Fla., sports bar and nightclub owner, insists he isn’t a “tinfoil hat-wearing” type preparing for the end of the world.
Rather, he cites growing security threats—such as a global health pandemic, cataclysmic weather and terror attacks.
“There’s a Camp David for the president,” he says. “If you’re at a certain level where you can afford it, you can get that, too.”
The so-called Survival Condo complex boasts full and half-floor units that cost $1.5 million to $3 million each. The building can accommodate up to 75 people, and buyers include doctors, scientists and entrepreneurs, says developer Larry Hall.
