No without my Ferrari
Asia's tallest award-winning residence with en suite elevated sky garages.
Asia’s tallest award-winning residence with en suite elevated sky garages in Singapore. Superbly located within walking distance to Orchard Road, this 56-units luxurious condominium is designed to satisfy the demanding taste and needs of the sophisticated and cosmopolitan urbanite. With its ultra-modern design and fittings, it boasts the tallest en suite elevated car porch residences in Asia, where state-of-the-art car lifts transfer the owner’s cars right up to their units.
KOP Properties is a purveyor of lifestyle experiences delivered through a diverse range of businesses from residential and commercial properties, hotels and resorts. Despite the hefty price tag to own or rent such an apartment, which offers tens of thousands of square meters of living space for those who can afford it, the designers had a big problem: parking. The dedicated team of architects and engineers then came up with a solution to the parking problem.
“It’s done in such a way that it’s a museum showcase, it’s just not a car park”, CEO of real estate development firm, KOP Properties said. Apart from the so-called “sky garages”, Hamilton Scotts also offers other high-end features, such as a luxury gym, conference rooms, jacuzzis, and an outdoor pool.
But the price tag, as mentioned before, is hefty, to say the least; a single unit can cost anywhere between $9.4 million to $23.5 million, while renting an apartment there would set you back around $11,000 monthly.
So how does one actually drive their Ferrari or Bentley virtually into their living room? Well, the system seems complex but is actually simple enough. When a resident enters the building, they drive their car straight into a glass elevator shaft. The elevator raises the vehicle up to the condo and parks it within a glass enclosure that is visible from the living room.
As well as the obvious convenience factor, the unique design allows owners of expensive cars to showcase their supercars instead of hiding them away in basement garages. Hamilton Scotts is the first building in the world to offer such an amazing parking solution.
