It’s no secret that people in Miami FL love their cars. In fact, there’s a pretty good chance that if you’re on the road on any given day, you’ll see countless Bentley’s, Ferarri’s and Lamborghini’s all over town. Fast cars go hand in hand with Miami Luxury Condos and are part of everyday life here in Miami. But for many luxury condo owners, having a safe and secure place to keep your prized possession can oftentimes be a stressful situation.
Traditional luxury condos in Miami are great and provide you with all of the amenities and luxury services that you could ever want. And these luxury condos can be found all over Miami, from Key Biscayne and Bal Harbour to Miami Beach and Sunny Isles Beach. But if you’re an exotic car owner and you drive your luxury car on a regular basis, then you may a bit more limited on which luxury condos and buildings are right for you.
As a general rule of thumb, most Miami luxury condos come with 1 parking space, usually 1 per bedroom and anything larger than 2 bedrooms will come with 2 parking spaces. In addition, most Miami luxury condo buildings also provide complimentary valet services for owners and guests. But most of the time, this means your car is parked in a regular indoor garage parking space and is exposed to dings, dust and everything else found in a parking garage.

Porsche Design Tower was the very first Miami condominiums that was truly designed for exotic car owners. Porsche Design Tower owners can park their cars on any of the tower’s 57 stories, right outside their individual unit.

Drivers don’t have to get out of their cars until they’re safely inside their luxury condos. Residents can park two or four Porsches in their windowed car port. In this way, the car becomes another modern design feature in these expertly decorated Miami luxury condos.

The Miami oceanfront units will feature a multi-car garage (via the tower’s car elevator) so residents can securely store their vehicles, and residences all have a private balcony, sunken pool and sauna. Dezer says each unit was designed for seamless indoor-outdoor living and each unit will have views over the ocean and bay through its floor-to-ceiling windows.
The exterior’s unique façade will make it stand out from other towers on the beach. “If you look at the exterior of the building, we are trying to do triangular windows that will be convex and concave coming in and create a diamond pattern on the exterior of the building,” Dezer says. “When the sun hits the building in the right way, it will shine all over the place.”
