CONCORDIA, KS (KCTV) -

Threats of terrorist attacks, Ebola and global warming have a lot of people nervous about the future.

Some are going to extreme lengths to survive the unknown, and they're doing it in comfort thanks to the Luxury Survival Condo.

You'll have to drive more than three hours outside of Kansas City to get there, and you'll have to know where to look. The condos are tucked away under a rural prairie near Concordia, KS, in a decommissioned missile silo.

The developer, Larry Hall, who has done work with NASA, spent five years carefully designing the facility to and offer families pleasure and protection if the world goes awry.

The bunker boasts a park with a rock climbing wall and faux lawn for pets that drains into the septic system. There's also a heated swimming 50,000-gallon swimming pool with a waterfall and slide. 

If that's not enough exercise, you can lift weights or go for a run in the gym and later sit in the sauna to relax.

For your entertainment, there's a 17-seat movie theater with surround sound and a large-screen TV. Just two floors up you'll find a library and a classroom.

Hop on the elevator to get from floor one to 14 in 29 seconds.

Levels five through 11 are apartments.

State of the art appliances and the finest finishes fill the 1,800-square-foot space. Electronic windows keep you feeling connected to the rest of the world even though you're more encased in 9 feet of concrete and dirt.

"From looking at these windows, you know what time of day it is, you can see what the weather is doing, see if birds, activity or cars going," Hall said.

Full and half-floor units sold for up to $3 million.The real selling point though is that your home is strong enough to survive a nuclear attack or any other disaster.

The survival bunker has a water purifying system, and five different power sources.

The old missile control center is now fitted with a state-of-the-art hydroponic and aquaculture systems to grow fresh produce and fish. Hall says it will feed up to 75 people indefinitely.

"Although this is where we used to launch the missiles from, which was a weapon of mass destruction, now it's a food producing facility using state-of-the-art hydroponic and aquaculture technique so it actually saves people," Hall said.

Safety is a top concern so security is tight. Guards with military training and armored doors seal the entrance. A command center is set up with numerous screens that tap into exterior and interior cameras monitoring in live time. There's also a jail just in case a tenant becomes unruly.

Hall said interest in the project has grown. Recently, possible dangers of Ebola and ISIS have fed buyers' safety concerns.

"These people are from all walks of life, people I think have a stereotype idea that these people are paranoid or under medicated or something but that's not at all the case," Hall said.

His clients range from doctors, business executives, famous athletes and Hollywood A-listers.

The bunker is a life insurance plan for them.

"There is a certain good feeling you get, taking something that was meant to kill and making it the complete opposite, something that supports life and nurtures life and gives people protection," Hall said.

That silo is sold out, but Hall is already renovating a second and is in the process of buying a number of others.
