PORSCHE DESIGN TOWER ♦ A 57 STORY MASTERPIECE ♦ SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FLORIDA
The luxury beach condo where you can DRIVE to your 36th floor apartment!
Finding a parking space near their front door will no longer be a worry for anyone lucky enough to live in the new multimillion pound, 57-storey condo planned for Miami.
Instead they can just pull into a designated space, turn off the engine and sit back and enjoy the oceanfront view as they are escalated in a glass elevator to the front door of their apartment.
The ‘Jetson-esque’ luxury tower will rise in Sunny Isles Beach as part of a $560million project between Germany’s Porsche Design Group and a local developer, Gil Dezer.

It is 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,’ Juergen Gessler, CEO of Porsche Design Group, told the Miami Herald.
After the resident pulls over and switches off the engine, a robotic arm that works like an automatic plank will scoop up the car and put it into the elevator.
Once at the desired floor, the same robotic arm will park the car, leaving the resident in front of their front door.
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, reports the Miami Herald.

‘What this is really doing is taking two technologies that have existed for centuries and putting them together,’ said Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Properties.
‘It’s taking the robotic arm and it’s putting it in an elevator.’
The building, named the ‘Porsche Design Tower’, was approved unanimously on Thursdayt by the Sunny Isles Beach City Commission.
Before the meeting, Mayor Norman Edelcup said there had been no objections to the plan.
The luxury building will be constructed on 2.2 acres of land on Collins Avenue.
It will have 132 units, with smaller units being allocated two parking spaces and the larger ones, four, and 284 robotic parking spaces in total accessible via three elevators.

Residents will be able to see their cars from their living rooms.
‘So people with fancy cars and antiques, they will actually have a really nice view of them,’ Dezer told the Herald.
Units will range from 3,800 to 9,500 square feet and are expected to cost up to $9 million each.
Dezer said his hopes are that many other buildings in the U.S and the rest of the world will follow the Porsche Design Tower model.
But this will be the first and last one in South Florida, he said.
‘We want to keep this really exclusive and not have this become a McDonald’s kind of style.
The tower is going to change the skyline of Miami Beach,’ Dezer said.
‘This is something Floridians should be proud to have in their state.’
