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, divided into dozens of separate units, feel like a home. It has started to become 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.

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

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

The luxury building is nearing completion and is ninety percent 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 the Soffer family (#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 fifty percent sold with completion estimated for late 2019. Units start at $3.9 million and go up to $35 million for the penthouses.
