A “Doomsday Survival Community” is Being Built in North Texas
A new upscale community development is happening in North Texas for those that wish to survive a holocaust.
Trident Lakes, about 50 miles northwest of Dallas, is a 700 acre area along highway 56 between Ector and Savoy that will house about 1,600 people. Numerous condos will be built throughout the property that will be range between 900 and 3,600 square feet with underground floors.
Jim O'Conner is the CEO of Trident Lakes and told the Houston Chronicle, "We've evolved it into long-term sustainability instead of a survival community. The concept is to build a community that will last two centuries or longer. That means we're looking at designs that include earth structures that won't be exposed to the elements."
The community will also feature "off the grid" food, water, energy sources. Even greenhouses and an air purification system will be included.
As far as the upscale amenities, an equestrian center, polo fields, zip lines, gun ranges, retail shops, restaurants and even helipads will be built.
Spokesman Richie Whitt said, "Interest in the community has been very favorable. We've gotten over 300 people who are interested, telling us to put them down for a down payment."
Construction is expected to start in 2017 with the first residents expected in 2018. No prices have been set for the condos.
