A newly opened high-rise apartment building in Singapore is offering owners the luxury of parking their cars in elevated car porches, right next to their living room, high up in the sky. Called “Sky Garages”, the Hamilton Scott features a biometrically-controlled elevator that delivers and park cars right beside homeowners’ lavish living spaces. A glass wall separates the garage from the living room, allowing owners to proudly display as well as keep a close eye on their beloved and expensive toys from the couch.
Hamilton Scott is located within walking distance of the famous orchard road district in Singapore, a city notorious for the lack of open spaces. Although a multi-level parking for the residents would have sufficed, the developers decided to do something that few people have done before - being their cars to their living rooms. The process begins at the basement, at a designated point where drivers stop their vehicles. They exit the car and undergo a biometric scan, whereupon elevators take the car up to the correct unit. The entire procedure in automated and driver-less.
The 30-story building has 56 units, and each residential unit is equipped with two parking spaces. The condominium also includes a couple of penthouse units with interior customized to buyer specifications, serviced by an internal lift and come with a rooftop garden and swimming pool. They can accommodate four cars each.
Developed by Hayden Properties, Hamilton Scott is the first apartment building in Asia to feature car parking within the apartment units. Units are priced at around $9.4 million to about $23.5 million.
