Preparation for the apocalypse has been in vogue for years, and Vintuary Holdings of Dallas has been cashing in on demand for luxury lifestyle amenities on the other side of the end of the world. The development company is currently building out the 700-acre Trident Lakes community in Texas, where wealthy survivalists can gather in an off-the-grid setting while enjoying the finer things in life (like golf, zip lines and spa facilities).
Word on the street is that Vintuary is planning on bringing all that good stuff to Ohio.
Here's what's known: Vintuary Holdings “has identified and is close to purchasing" some property in Jackson County, according to the Columbus Dispatch. The paper elaborates on what makes Trident Lakes so interesting:
Plans call for the Trident Lakes in Texas to include as many as 500 earth-sheltered condominiums ranging from 900 to 3,600 square feet. The community is designed to be self-sustaining in the event of an emergency and would include water, food and electricity sources.
A network of tunnels would run under the property, which would be guarded by watchtowers and surrounded by a 12-foot wall. Other features would include a DNA vault, helipads and air-lock doors.
In addition to security and sustainability features, Trident Lakes would include several luxury perks such as a golf course, horse facilities, sand-beach lakes, jogging trails, polo fields, gun ranges, a spa and zip lines.
“We’re not just a hole in the ground to hide in,” said Trident Lakes CEO James O’Connor.
