A Storm Shelter for you and 500 of your Friends

A re-purposed United States military bunker in North Kansas City is for sale. With 10,000 square feet, there is plenty of room for everyone. Bring your Ham radio as there is a two hundred foot antenna.

Mark Turnbow, an independent real estate consultant is working on the sale with Keller Williams Commercial, Kansas City.

“There are many of these properties, nationwide.” Turnbow says. “Thousands of underground bunkers are built worldwide and half of them we don't know about. That is another story” he added.

The facility in Polo has been converted to a residence. It was built in the 1960's during the cold war as a communications station. At the time, the costs to build these facilities exceeded millions of dollars. Included are water and air filtration. Two foot thick walls and blast doors. Energy costs are low due to the subterranean construction.

Today, a modern kitchen along with a gym have been added.

Chuck Cuda with KW Commercial is the local representation in the sale.

“It is quite a unique experience. If you are looking for peace and quiet, you will find it here. It is unlikely a bomb will fall on the site, but Mother Nature is always a possibility.” Cuda says.

The site is ten commercial acres. Plenty of room for guest parking and a garden.
