New York, pfft, who needs New York when the soft white beaches of South Florida call?
The Porsche Design Tower is nearing completion in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida and by the time it’s finished the place will be crawling with more than 20 billionaires according to the developer. With unit prices ranging from $4 million to $32.5 million it’s not hard to see why.
As with anything penned by the people at Porsche Design, mouth watering motorized metal is a focal point.
Three patented Dezervators–glass drive-in elevators rising 600 feet per minute–were developed specifically for the Porsche Design Tower, and will allow residents to literally drive to their doorsteps.
Individual sky-garages are connected to each unit, giving each resident a mirrored cubicle right outside their living room where they can admire their Porsches, Bentleys and Ferraris while perusing the Wall Street Journal with the morning cup of joe. Or whatever billionaires do in the morning.
However you don’t have to use the lifts. You also have the valet-assisted option, leave them your keys and they’ll park your ride on the sun drenched terrace as you take the elevator home; or a third option to let the valet shuttle your car up the lift.
In addition a specialized Car Concierge will handle regular maintenance, detailing and tire rotations.
The crown jewel though has to be the 17,000-square-foot Porsche Penthouse on the 60th floor. The $32.5 million penthouse features 20-foot ceilings, state-of-the-art kitchen, massive living and dining areas, four ensuite bedrooms, seven baths, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and its own private elevator.
Outside the opulence continues, with two pools–one on the terrace and one on the roof– two balconies, two outdoor kitchens and the pièce de résistance, a 3,000-square-foot car gallery.
Building amenities include a three-story lobby with an observatory for the glass car lift, an ocean side restaurant, ocean side bar and lounge, oceanfront pool including complimentary food and beverage service, virtual golf simulator, race car simulator, full ballroom, oceanfront gym and yoga rooms, spa, sauna and yes, even a hair salon.
The 641 foot tall tower cost nearly $600 million to build. It’s scheduled to open on September 1st, 2016 and is currently 95% sold out.
