Park in ‘sky garages’ directly next to apartments

Posted on | December 8, 2011 | No Comments

Porsche Design Group has proposed a 57-storey ‘ultra-luxury’ tower where a robotic parking system will allow owners to park in ‘sky garages’ directly next to their apartments.

Plans for the 132-residence tower have been approved by Florida’s City of Sunny Isles Beach.

The Porsche Design brand was founded by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the designer of the 911 sports car. “I could not envision a more exceptional project for our brand,” said Porsche Design Group CEO Dr Juergen Gessler. “The Porsche Design Tower would be representative of our company’s commitment to engineered luxury and the fundamentals that redefine luxury and deliver technically inspired products, such as this state-of-the-art parking system.”

The proposed building will feature three circular platforms at the building’s centre which operate as passenger-speed ‘automobile elevators’ equipped with sensors that will take vehicles and their owners to their designated floor. The cars will then be parked at one of 284 robotic parking spaces adjacent to the owners’ units.

“Our development team is confident this building will serve as a catalyst for other Porsche Design Towers throughout the world,” said Dezer Properties president Gil Dezer. “There would simply be no other building in the world with such unsurpassed technological and design elements. The design team engaged in conceptualizing the Porsche Design Tower has addressed every imaginable detail a potential owner might anticipate. It has been nothing short of a privilege working with such an esteemed group of dedicated professionals.”
