Texas Luxury Community Planned, Complete with Underground Bunkers
About 50 miles northwest of Dallas along Highway 56, a new $300 million community called Trident Lakes will be built for those who want to prepare for the worst. According to Chron.com, “400 planned condos will be able to house about 1,600 people total. The condos will range from 900 to 3,600 square feet in size and feature underground floors.” Essentially, these will be underground bunkers to prepare for whatever the future holds.
Trident Lakes CEO Jim O’Connor says that he doesn’t see the community as a survivalist refuge, but rather a place that could remain for two centuries due to its sustainability. They will even have food, water and energy sources that are “off the grid” and a DNA vault.
KERA News writes that Trident Lakes hopes to have residents with a variety of skill sets, and those who enjoy the finer things. The community will also include an equestrian center, zip lines, and polo fields.
“This is not only a place to go in an emergency but also a place people can enjoy living in year round,” O’Connor told Chron.com. Their website requires an invitation code to enter, already creating a feeling of privacy and exclusivity. Those who find Trident Lakes a fit might be able to move-in in 2018.
