The Texas Underground City to Survive the End of the World

We do not know if it will be because of the many apocalyptic films that have been shot lately, because of the terrible natural catastrophes that the planet has experienced in recent decades or because there is increasing awareness about the damage that humans have caused on Earth, but The truth is that fear of the end of the world is increasingly present in the population. In fact, some companies are taking advantage of this fear to do business. We already told you a few months ago about the bunker of the Soviets that will save the rich from the end of the world.

Today we want to tell you about a similar project carried out in Texas. We are referring to the Trident Lakes residential complex, a kind of "resort town" designed so that 1,600 people can survive in the event of a catastrophe. And not only that, but they would have all kinds of luxuries and comforts. Do you want to discover more details about this project that is being carried out in the United States? Well, we recommend that you do not miss anything that we tell you below!

For 1,600 inhabitants

Soon Texas, and more specifically the city of Ector, will have an urbanization that will offer shelter in the event of a terrorist, nuclear or space attack. As we have already told you, this is Trident Lakes, a residential complex that will have an area of ​​283 hectares and that will have 400 apartment blocks, in which 1,600 residents can stay. The most surprising thing is that 90% of the surface of these buildings will be underground, although they will have exterior side patios . It is important to note that the complex will be surrounded by a 3.6 meter high wall and will have watchtowers. In addition, to make the place visible from the highway, a fountain with a 50-meter statue of Poseidon will be built.


All kinds of luxuries

As we have mentioned before, the inhabitants of this residential complex will have all kinds of luxuries, including a golf course, spa, equestrian center, hotel, restaurant, shopping center, heliports, a DNA vault … As for the houses, there will be of three types, ranging from 275 square meters to 1,100 square meters. In addition, it is important to note that in the event of a disaster, residents will be able to rely on off-grid power and water production. In fact, even a network of navigable tunnels and an air purification system have been planned. Of course, the designs can change as the project progresses.

Completed in 2018

The Trident Lakes project is promoted by a group of Texan millionaires who have realized the feeling of pessimism that reigns in this American state and that many wealthy people in the country are eager for a safe place in case the situation the planet is unsustainable. They already have all the necessary permits to build the residential complex which, apparently, will cost around 280 million euros. At the moment only the huge central fountain is under construction, but it is scheduled to be completed in 2018.


A beautiful place to live that is also safe

It is important to note that project investors are trying to change the apocalyptic perception of Trident Lakes. Thus, instead of offering this city as a solution for apocalyptic scenarios, they offer it as a long-term sustainable community. As explained by James O’Connor, director of Vintuary Holdings, the company that represents the investors of the project, they are not looking only to put all their residents underground, but to build a “beautiful place to live that is also safe” . Then we leave you with the video about this "vacation city" that the CBS Dallas television channel has uploaded to its YouTube channel. Do not miss it!
