Until now, some of the most luxurious residential projects across the world flaunted sky garages for its penthouse properties that allow owners to park their beautiful cars right inside the high-rise apartments. However, an American developer thinks that amenity is a thing of the past. Real estate developer, Dan Kodsi, believes that the time for flying car has arrived and his newest luxury housing project will become the world’s first to feature flying-car docks, or sky ports, on the penthouse level of its 60-story tower. Called the Paramount Miami Worldcenter, the 27-acre mixed-use super project is being touted as to be the most amenitized property in the nation. The feature will let residents to live a Jetsons-style lifestyle where they would be able to land on top of the building in vertical takeoff and landing vehicles.
The veteran developer thinks personal transport drones built by Uber and Airbus will soon become a reality and wants its residential project to be ready for it. “These flying-car projects are the real deal,” said Paramount Ventures CEO Dan Kodsi. “They are funded. NASA is involved. It’s not just science fiction anymore.” He expects flying cars to take to the Miami skies in the next 10 to 15 years. “Being a developer you want to see where the trends are heading and stay ahead of them,” Kodsi added. Kodsi is co-developing Paramount with Worldcenter developers Art Falcone and Nitin Motwani. The project has 500-plus units ranging from $700,000 to $11 million. It is expected to be completed in 2019 and is already 80 percent sold.
