Sometimes a double-gated community just isn’t safe enough.

Curbed reports that Trident Lakes, a 700-acre planned community near Dallas, is designed to function self-sufficiently in the event of a natural disaster or nuclear attack. The community is set behind 12-foot concrete walls and equipped with underground bunkers. A private security force keeps guard.

The development, which is expected to cost $320 million to complete, isn’t all doom and gloom. It has plenty of high-end housing options and amenities, including lagoons, spas, shops, and a golf course.
