If you really want to be on the cutting edge of condo cool, an apartment equipped with a CarLift is the only way to go. The CarLift lets you keep your car right on the balcony.
You’ve likely seen indoor garages before, photographed in ultra-expensive mansions. We’ve even seen elevators to take your car away, to the underground parking. The CarLift, designed by the German architect firm Topos, will be installed in a swanky new six-storey apartment building located in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin.
What a luxury it would be to have your prized ride right outside the patio door. No unsafe underground parking and no worries about theft or vandalism. An added bonus is that CarLift is programmable; you can set what time you need the elevator to be ready and there it is waiting for you in the morning.
As you can imagine, the cost of such luxury and convenience does not come cheap; the smallest apartment in the building is $700,000 and the penthouse is $2.4 million. But if you have separation issues with your car, the CarLift may help you sleep soundly.
