Whether it's nuclear warfare or a zombie apocalypse that triggers the end of the world, Vivos Group wants you to be prepared. The California-based company builds and maintains massive fortified shelters where high-net-worth families can buy space and live out Armageddon.
Its new development, Vivos xPoint, is billed as the largest private shelter community on earth. The bunker community houses up to 5,000 people and can withstand a 500,000-pound blast.
Take a look inside this modern-day Noah's Ark.
"This is the place you will want to be when the SHTF," or s--t hits the fan, according to a release from Vivos Group. No one calls xPoint home just yet.
The bunkers were built to withstand a 500,000-pound blast from explosives within.
Since 1967, when the base was retired, the bunkers have been gutted. Vivos acquired the property in 2016 and repurposed it as the "ultimate shelter community."
Vivos can pitch in as little or as much as the tenants like.
The company estimates the cost of retrofitting each shelter — complete with a blast door seal and interior lock, an escape hatch, exhaust and air vents, a propane generator, a fuel tank, electrical wiring, plumbing, a hot water heater, and a septic system — is roughly $12,000.
More "optional" construction, such as building walls, flooring, and energy storage, could run up an additional $20,300. For a full estimate of the costs, click here.
They fit 10 comfortably, though some buyers may opt to turn their bunker into a deluxe suite for immediate family only. This rendering shows how LED screens might replace windows.
Vivos hopes to complete construction on the general store and offices and living quarters for staff by fall 2017.
Vivos also plans to transform one bunker into a dedicated school and training space by next fall. The company will not provide the education, but rather, create space for it.
The application process entails a tour, a background check, and a $5,000 fully refundable fee.
For some, you can't put a price on peace of mind.
