Porsche Design Tower Is Under Construction

Quote:
Construction has begun on one of the wildest fantasies to land on the shores of Sunny Isles Beach: Porsche Design Tower, with foundation work happening now. And over at exMiami.org, one of the admins discovered that the NCO (which means they're starting construction, we think) was filed back on the 22nd of March. The tower, marketed under the Porsche brand, will have three car elevators in its central core, pools on the balconies, and lots of metallic grey tones. And an official groundbreaking ceremony will be happening next Friday, for any party crashers out there.
Groundbreaking

At first sight I thought, "it took Porsche to design such a simple building?", but after seeing the whole concept, I am quite speechless. No wonder they show only Porsches, Bentleys and such in the renders... There is a building here in São Paulo that has an elevator for cars, but I don't think it has two parking spaces on each apartment!

Porsche Design Tower Goes Vertical After Securing $214M Loan

Quote:
New York/South Florida-based Dezer Development today announced that it had closed a $214 million loan from Wells Fargo for construction of the iconic Porsche Design Tower Miami, located in Sunny Isles Beach. It is the largest loan approved for a major construction project in the Southeast United States since the real estate recession, and exponentially larger than any post-recession loan of its kind in South Florida. At $214 million, it is almost 30 percent larger than the previous largest substantive construction loan for a South Florida project since the recovery began.

Porche Design TowerThe 132-residence, 60-story, ultra-luxury Porsche Design condominium tower is located at 18555 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The project has already secured $535 million in sales – representing over two-thirds of the units – far exceeding the benchmarks for securing the loan. Sell-out of the remaining units is anticipated to occur towards the end of the year at the current absorption rates. The building’s expansive residences range in size from 4,800 to 17,000 square feet and are priced from $4.8 million to $32.5 million. The building is slated for occupancy first quarter of 2016.

“This is extremely positive news for real estate financing and the recovery of the residential real estate market in South Florida,” says Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Development. “It is also a testament to how this one-of-a-kind project has been received by our buyers, as well as the lending community.”

22 Units At Porsche Design Tower Have Been Sold To Billionaires

Quote:
Porsche Design Tower, under construction in Sunny Isles, has been a magnet for the ultra wealthy unlike any other building in the world.

22 units in the building have been sold to billionaires, according to the developer. The high-tech building will open in late 2015, allowing residents to drive their cars onto an elevator and park in front of their condo unit.

75 percent of the building has already been reserved, with $550 million worth of contracts. Unit prices range from $4.5 million to $32.5 million. The developer recently landed a $214 million construction loan to build the tower.

It likely will be the world’s first condominium complex with elevators that will take residents directly to their units while they are sitting in their cars. “You don’t have to leave your car until you are in front of your apartment,” said Juergen Gessler, CEO of Porsche Design Group.
He probably has never heard of the Carloft, which has been on the market in Porscheland for years.

There's already a complete condo in Singapore where you can park your car in your apartment. You still have to get out of your car to get to your room though...

Well, it's more likely that it's because Porsche are now owned by Volkswagen, which also owns Bentley and Audi (one of the other cars in this render).

Though it's not a bad tower--nicely executed and all, with that truly pampering car storage system--I don't think it's particularly interesting, and wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the Porsche group (i.e., VW) are footing some of the bill here. VW is quickly becoming the automotive group of the ultra-wealthy; they own Lamborghini, Bentley, Bugatti, Audi, and Porsche.
