We can leave it open at this stage, and see how much money actually comes our way.

Most likely answer: None of them.

Hopeful but still slightly realistic answer: Nike.

I'd prefer Titan, but Nike looks like a better deal for the price.

3 million is not really a huge deal. If we can setup a business plan, I have a connection to a real estate agent in Toronto (Rich Uncle Moneybags) who can probably give us a few pointers or names of someone we can contact. He's a Real Estate Broker, specifically for dealing as a go-between between people and banks for projects like this.

We probably should begin pulling documents on the silos that we are looking at, that way we have a general idea on what we are dealing with, such as whats on the property, sat imaging, evenvironmental and the like. Most of the stuff is avaliable, its just a pain to look up.

btw, anyone know how to take .jpegs from google maps? i want to try to post some sat images of the possibilites once i find them

I did some investigating and found this link for pictures of the Titan 1 site near Denver:
http://www.undercity.org/photos/Denver_Silo/index.htm
Here's a hazardous materials and waste disposal report for the Titan 1 complex:
http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/hm/titanmissiles.htm

As you can see, getting something this large and this dilapidated repaired and cleaned up would be an immense undertaking. Factor in the cost (2,800,000 USD) of buying the site alone ("no owner financing, full cash at closing required") and the unnecessarily large size of the facility and the Titan 1 Complex quickly becomes quite infeasible.

The Nike Site, on the other hand, looks very promising for a minute fraction of the price. Let's suppose that the cost of buying/cleaning/renovating/repairing a site would be 2-3 times the cost of the site's purchase price.

  • Titan 1 Site (total - site and renovation) price: $5,600,000 - $8,400,000
  • Nike Site (total - site and renovation) price: $398,000 - $597,000

This quickly puts the difference in perspective.
The underground size of the Nike Site is estimated at 15,000 sq. ft. To give you an idea here is an image of a design for a 15,000 sq. ft. home:
That's just the underground floor space; there's also an above-ground concrete bunker, 2 workshop buildings, and 2 storage buildings. All for less than the cost of your average home.

Now, another important aspect is this: where will people live? On site? Off site? Above or under ground?
The minimum healthy bedroom size for a single person (meaning eating, bathroom, living space is elsewhere) is about 70 sq. ft. Let's say half of the underground complex is used for living quarters (not likely) - at most about 100 people could fit. I think it would be better if the above ground buildings were used for living space. It would be extremely beneficial if someone could contact the site owner and obtain blueprints or at least estimates for the size of the above-ground buildings.

Just my input. I want to support this project as much as I can, but I'd like to be realistic about expectations.
I see many people here very optimistic about funding; that's good, but the goal isn't to obtain the largest sum of money but to make the most efficient use of the money for the sake of the project.

Let's not be another Sealand, or Technocracy, or any other too-ambitious project. Don't tell people we have a plan when we don't, and always make decisions carefully based on research and supported by facts.

We really only have to refurbish the portions we would be using.

That being said, I really don't think the Nike one is the best way to go. Either the Titan, or the Mitchell one would be the best idea imo.

And the floor plan and such can all be completely different depending on the path we take. It really depends on what the business plan is.

If we are considering trying our hand at some farming on the side, it might be worth looking into who owns the land around the facilities, as well as what the areas are like (climate-wise, especially). Buying up a little more land might add to the initial cost, but it's all extra space for food or power generation.

I contacted the owner of the Nike site about a floorplan, but he said that the site is selling tomorrow at 4:00. So no Nike site. I think the Atlas E site is the best bet, a ton of acreage, same size as the Nike site, and only 33% more, base price wise.

Excellent bit of work there. A shame we can't get Nike, but eh. I was comparing some of the photos of the sites that said they need to be cleaned & refurbished....they really weren't kidding on the cleaning part. Just wow. lol

something just hit me as i read this, why dont we approach the pentagon and see if any just came on the market. It might not bear any fruit, but it may give us an idea on where more silos/epic underground complexs are avalible, plus we may be able to work out some sort of financing plan, if we can persuade them we are serious.

you'll be surprised who they will sell to, and what they will sell (no weapons though Smile ) once they know you have hard cash.

If /b/ gets a hold of this, i'm willing to bet at least 5 knuckleheads will try to march out in front of the building with guy forks masks carrying signs & spouting memes. lol

Comedy aside, sounds like a solid plan. So who's the suc--I mean, volunteer for this? Very Happy

We'll have to find someone with good people skills.

I do know some people who know some other people who I believe from what I recall lived in the vanenberg (Probably not spelled right) Who live near some of the Atlas Silos. I will ask him to contact to perhaps get more info. After all aren't all the atlas similar to each other?

As for people skills, I would be up for it but calling the pentagon wouldn't be best for my phone bill. (Probably be on hold for a bit too)

If this is going to take several years of planning while people get out of school, I heard that Obama is trying to reduce or eliminate nuclear weapons. If this includes the Minuteman III, there will be an influx of recently decommissioned silos (as in, no cleaning, no dilapidation, no asbestos) that might be cheap due to quantity. Might be worth waiting for.

The fact that the Nike site is sold pretty much gives us the indication that it's folly to be looking at existing sites right now in the early planning stages.

If this is going to be a five year plan, we aren't going to have the capital to go after a site until 2012 at least.

Minuteman (Still Active)
Wikipedia will not give me exact locations, but the associated Air Force Bases are:

Francis E. Warren Air Force Base
Minot Air Force Base
Malmstrom Air Force Base
Ellsworth Air Force Base
Whiteman Air Force Base
Grand Forks Air Force Base

If we ever get a silo, it will be from this list, or a Minuteman silo.
I will be investigating the fate of the silos mentioned.

Um... You should keep that info safe for now, as I suspect that unless all of that is declassified/open to the public, we may be in a world of hurt.

But good job on the research.

It was all on Wikipedia, that's why I couldn't find Minuteman info, so I think it's OK.

You'd be surprised how much information is out there to see that you'd think would be classified. I myself have a record of a CIA briefing to the Pentagon on China's military preparedness circa 2005 or so that I found online.

It could be worth our time to go and knock at the army's door and ask for silos to sell... As a rule of thumb, anyone buying anything seeks to sell it twice the price they got, maybe more in the case of the silos, since they might very well stay a long time out there unattended.

But it's also likely that the site selling them only picked the most suitable silos for sell... And the silo they sell already look kinda rusty.
