Things are looking up for car lovers in Miami. Germany-based Porsche Design Group and local developer Gil Dezer have joined forces to create the world’s first condominium complex with elevators that transport residents directly to their units … without ever having to step foot outside their cars.
The $560 million Porsche Design Tower will rise in Sunny Isles Beach with three glass elevators boasting jaw-dropping views of the city and ocean. The high-speed ride, estimated to last 45 to 90 seconds, will be the only one of its kind in South Florida, but Dezer has said he plans to build others throughout the United States (as long as exclusivity doesn’t become compromised).
“We want to keep this really exclusive and not have this become a McDonald’s kind of style,” Dezer said. “The tower is going to change the skyline of Miami Beach. This is something Floridians should be proud to have in their state.”
The 57-story building on Collins Avenue will hold 132 housing units, ranging from 3,800 to 9,500 square feet and costing up to $9 million. Each unit will get at least two parking spaces, but larger units will be allowed four spots.
