An upscale, 700-acre development is underway in Fannin County that plans to boast a golf course, spa and bunker condominiums for the rich and famous to survive doomsday.
The development, named Trident Lakes from the $4 million centerpiece fountain that will feature a Poseidon statute holding a golden trident, aims to be a five-star resort community and a safe haven from worst case scenarios.
“It’s not just a hole in the ground to hide in — it’s going to be one of the most plush resorts in all of Texas, if not America,” Trident Lakes Spokesperson Richie Whitt said.
The project is expected to cost $300 million and will be completed in phases on a property located off of State Highway 56, west of Ector. When the five-year project is completed, the fortress resort complex is expected to have about 400 condos that could house about 1,600 people. Whitt said the condos will be about 90 percent underground with topside patios. The complex is being developed by Vintuary Holdings.
