High-Rise Car Elevators Allow Residents to Have an Attached Private Garage

Porche Design Tower is a new 60-story residential high-rise under construction on Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The 60-story building, developed by Dezer Development in collaboration with Porche Design Group and architectural firm Sieger Suarez, will contain 132 condominiums each with an attached two car "sky garage" serviced by car elevators. After a resident arrives at the under-ground-level main garage and switches off his car's engine, a robotic arm with a pallet will lift up the car and place it the elevator. Once at the desired floor, that same robotic arm will place the car in the resident's garage. During the 45-90 second ride, the glass elevators provide views of the ocean, city and Intracoastal Waterway.
