The Best Parking Spot for condo or apartment

A new architectural concept that allow people to park their car outside their apartment.

http://carloft.de/

The idea behind CarLoft®

Safety*- Convenience*- Luxury

Just imagine having your very own green oasis at the heart of the city. Your children are playing within arm's reach while you relax in the whirlpool or improve your golf handicap on your putting green in your aerial garden right next to your flat*- whatever storey you live on!
Imagine living in the city centre*- but in your own private location. Even though you can hear the pulsating city centre, it's like living in a house in the country.
Imagine having all the benefits of life in the big city*- without all the usual drawbacks.

Are you looking for that something special?
Welcome to the world of CarLoft®.

Fed up with looking for somewhere to park? Afraid of your car being vandalised? Nervous about dark alleyways and gloomy underground car parks?
Your worries are a thing of the past.
Imagine living in a flat*- but parking your car on the same floor! Using the special CarLift, within just two minutes you can be either zooming off or back in your own home again*- a loft with unparalleled standards of safety, comfort and exclusiveness.

CarLoft® is a pioneering modular loft scheme with a garden and a garage on every floor. All these brand-new luxury flats come with at least one adjacent parking space known as the CarLoggia, reached via the CarLift. When you arrive outside the building, the CarLift recognises your car from the built-in transponder and knows which floor you live on. And still seated inside your car, you're taken straight to your home in total safety.

The lofts have a modular structure. Use the CarLoft® configurator to compile the living, sleeping and optional areas just as you need them. You can design your own CarLoft® individually or with renowned interior designers.

Another highlight is the aerial garden. Each loft has its own garden laid out just as you wish*- perhaps with a sandpit for your children or an illuminated pond next to an open fireplace. CarLoft® spells a unique way of life*- at the heart of the city, yet with all the advantages of a large country house.
CarLoft® is protected by international patent.

Brilliant idea! Not necessary where I live though.

I can see the headlines now... "Old lady driving with a dog on her lap wasn't paying attention and drives off the side of a 20 story building..."

we've had this in Lebanon for about 8 years now :/

the condo goes for 10million$ per floor
owned mostly by saudis

you have a car elevator to your condo floor with 5 parking spots on your floor
a private swimming pool
and I've even heard (never seen it) that they have a place for you to park your boat...

Imagine some1's locks his keys inside the car while on the elevator...like running back into the house to get something..during rush hour.

I'd love to
but I cant for 3 reasons:

1) I have no idea which building it is... I know where it is, and I know it exists cuz I've heard about it numerous times...

2) I got a broken leg till the end of the month..

3) the area it's in is currently under siege.. not risking my neck for pix lol (no one watches the news anymore?)
