Eye View Architecture, Florida Company Announces First Luxury Condo With Car Elevators, Nothing New Here

November 19, 2011

Pull over into the designated space. Turn off the engine. And enjoy the  oceanfront view as you escalate in a glass elevator that takes you, while you  are sitting in your car, to the front door of your apartment.

No, this is not the latest Disney ride.

The $560 million Jetsonesque tower will rise in Sunny Isles Beach as part of  a collaboration between Germany-based Porsche Design Group and a local  developer, Gil Dezer. It likely will be  the world’s first condominium complex  with elevators that will take residents directly to their units while they are  sitting in their cars.

“You don’t have to leave your car until you are in front of your apartment,” said Juergen Gessler, CEO of Porsche Design Group.

The glass elevators will give residents and their guests unparalleled views  of the city or of the ocean during their high-speed ride, expected to last 45 to  90 seconds. The building, to named Porsche Design Tower, was approved unanimously Thursday  night by the Sunny Isles Beach City Commission.

Nothing new here move on…
