Flying-Car Landing Pads Are Just One Of The Latest Trends In Luxury Amenities


As cities become increasingly crowded, vertical living takes on a greater level of importance in people’s lives. Many of today’s buyers no longer see a condo as a temporary first step to the property ladder but are approaching multi-family living as a place to live over the longterm. Developers have responded with creative amenity packages that try to make a tall building feel like a home. Now it is one of the more competitive aspects of new construction, with everything from celebrity trainers and chefs to high-end designers being called in to add their name to the project.

But the one that is ahead of them all is the building with a landing pad for flying cars that emerges on-demand from the rooftop pool.

Have a look at how it all works in this video:

“The technology [for flying cars] exists today,” says CEO of the Paramount Miami Worldcenter project, Daniel Kodsi. “We are just a few years away from the first flights, which could start in the 2020s, depending on regulatory issues. Meanwhile we are building for the future now.”

The luxury building is nearing completion and is 90% sold out. It also offers extensive amenities on its four-acre elevated urban amenities deck, with resort-style pools, spas, jogging paths, gardens, villas, summer BBQ kitchens, lounges, a jam room, tennis courts and a soccer field overlooking downtown Miami.

If you don’t want to hold out until flying cars become a reality, there’s always the Turnberry Ocean Club developed by Jeffrey Soffer of the Soffer family (No. 122 on Forbes Richest Families list). Turnberry residents can have private aviation access from the Fontainebleau Aviation Luxe Facility at the Opa-Locka Executive Airport. This comes with preferred rates, aircraft maintenance and full-service concierge. The residential building is 60% sold with completion estimated for late 2019. Units start at $3.9 million and go up to $35 million for the penthouses.
