For a few fortunate exotic-car owners, quality of life is about to reach even greater heights with the September opening of the Porsche Design Tower Miami in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. The 60-story residential community is geared toward those who view their vehicles as art and want them prominently displayed as such at home.Marking Porsche Design’s debut in real estate, the 641-foot luxury high-rise is a collaborative effort with Michael and Gil Dezer of Florida-based Dezer Development. The famed father-and-son team are also avid collectors, owning over 1,500 cars, as well as the Miami Auto Museum. Reflecting their focus, each of the 132 luxury condominiums comes with a private glass-encased sky garage integrated into its design, in order to ensure that the owner’s prized possession receives museum-quality prominence.
Facilitating the premier parking feature is a patented, one-of-a-kind lift system named the Dezervator. From the ground floor, residents will be able to drive onto a turntable that will rotate to access one of three glass car elevators. Next, a robotic arm extends to load the vehicle into the lift (with driver inside), which will then deposit it into the individual’s respective garage.
To complement their automotive presentation, the cutting-edge condos also offer unparalleled ocean-front views (through floor-to-ceiling windows) and lavish amenities that include a plunge pool and a balcony equipped with an outdoor kitchen.
For connoisseurs that want to remain even closer to their collections, private galleries are also available for purchase (at an additional $1.8 million to $2.5 million). The galleries have room for displaying four to nine automobiles and can be configured to include a living room, a private bar, and a billiard table.
At the apex of affluence, the 19,043-square-foot penthouse (currently still available) spans the four top floors; provides exhibit space for 11 cars; and features two private swimming pools, four suites, six and a half bathrooms, two balconies with kitchens, and a rooftop terrace.
All who reside in the tower will benefit from a full-service spa, ballroom, movie theater, and game room equipped with state-of-the-art racing simulators. And to add final polish to Porsche Design’s posh property, a dedicated car concierge will take care of regularly scheduled maintenance—from tire rotation to oil change, per owner’s discretion.
Priced between $6.3 million and $32.5 million each, only six residences remain unsold. (porsche-design.com)
