The Porsche Design Tower With It’s Own Car Elevator Has Finally Opened
This time last year I did a little piece about the Porsche Design Tower being built, a beachside tower, which gives the opportunity for billionaires to chill out with their supercars in their apartment. The final four story penthouse was still on offer for a cool $32.5 million. The penthouse has space for up to 11 vehicles, all soaring 56 stories high in the sky.
On Saturday the tower finally had it’s grand opening and various officials took the opportunity to blow their horns about how cool the tower is.
“It is an especially proud and remarkable moment to debut the first-ever Porsche Design Tower,” says Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Development. “Simply put, there is no other building in the world with the same level of groundbreaking ingenuity and superlative quality as Porsche Design Tower Miami. This iconic tower has not only redefined Miami’s skyline, but residential luxury as we know it.”
The 60-story tower’s most unique feature will be a patented, revolutionary automobile elevator lift system – “the Dezervator” – that whisks both residents and their vehicles up to their luxurious home in the sky.
The complexities of the car lift system presented a host of first-of-a-kind engineering and construction challenges for the Porsche Design Tower Miami developer and engineers. Overcoming the challengers has re-shaped condominium living for the residents, with the ability to have your vehicle literally at your front door. The automobile lift system is only one of the tower’s over-the-top, luxurious amenities, which also include plunge pools and outdoor summer kitchens on the balconies of almost every unit. This is a first in Miami and is a feature typically reserved only for the most elite penthouses.
Other building amenities include a state-of-the-art spa equipped with Vichy showers, a Sunset Terrace complemented with twin over-sized spa tubs, and oceanfront ballroom and multipurpose clubrooms. The clubrooms include a movie theatre with new release capability and game room complete with racing and golf simulators. The building will also have available a ‘Car Concierge’ who will tend to a resident’s vehicle, by assisting with regular maintenance, tire rotations, washing and other services.
If you’re a car nut who wants to live with your car, then this is the tower for you. I’m not sure whether they like you bringing in cars other than Porsche’s though.
