These Abandoned Houses In Texas Look Like Something Out of A Zombie Movie

Have you ever wondered where to hide in Texas if zombies took over the world? Look no further than this creepy, dilapidated housing development in San Antonio; these abandoned, unfinished houses look like something straight out of a zombie movie.

Called the Tundra Town Home Village, developer Mauro T. Padilla III got a 12 year sentence in federal prison for defrauding First National Bank, where he tried to secure construction funding on the housing project. He lied in order to get a $212,314 installment payment from a $3.7 million loan that would cover the first phase of construction on the townhomes. He used some of the money for lavish personal expenses, including a huge mansion and his son’s wedding.

Padilla began the project without a master plan for development, and went through with construction in 2007 on 37 townhomes without getting building permits or obtaining approval for roads, water, and sewer lines. He also built some of the houses in a floodplain.

Locate at 18495 State Highway 16, the builders anticipated that the housing development would attract workers from the nearby Toyota plant.

However, now it sits in ruin, waiting to either be sold to another developer, or be demolished. Right now, Tundra Town Home Village is back on the market, listed under the real-estate company Colliers International.

Here’s a video of the housing complex to give you an idea of just how creepy it really is:
