Parking for the Rich and Famous


Parking for the Rich and Famous

You think you’ve heard of every possible parking configuration possible. You think you’ve heard of every extreme parking scenario ever formed. But then you read something on that opens your eyes a little. A high-end apartment complex in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. offers buyers parking right off their units – two spots for each of the 132 homes. And for the owner of the 4-story penthouse, a special spot for a car collection.

What sets the penthouse apart, however, is that its deep-pocketed buyer will also receive a separate 57th-floor “car gallery” — a roughly 3,000-square-foot space that can accommodate up to seven additional cars, The Post can reveal.

Only six of the tower’s units are still available – including the penthouse. The sky rise, built by developer Gil Dezer is called the Porsche Design Tower. The building has a car lift that delivers vehicles to their owners’ apartments. The car is definitely a main theme.

Anybody interested can make a bid for the $32 million penthouse. The car gallery can be customized with rooms, pool tables, bars and any old thing – or left open for car storage.

I don’t want to own this place, but I’d really like to see it in person.

  1. I can understand the convenience factor of having one’s vehicles parked on the same floor as one’s residential accommodation but there are also a number of risks associated with this approach which include and are not limited to:

    1. The load bearing consequences on the building structure.
    2. The pollution potential within the residential quarters.
    3. Tendencies for unintentional or deliberate loss of life and damage to property.

    Imagine death through asphyxiation or even accidentally ramming the vehicle through the glass panes from such a high point!!!

    A number of disasters waiting to happen in my opinion.
