so today i'm reading in the south florida business journal that there is a new company that is selling car condos. that's right; spots to park your car that you pay for. indoor, secure, climate-controlled, luxe "studios" to store your car.
a few choice quotes:
"Envision them as secure, individual garages housed in low-rise, high-tech buildings, sort of a Fort Knox for expensive cars."
"One of the most repeated complaints from condo owners on the ocean and Intracoastal is that they don't have enough parking spaces for their extra cars.."
"An extra parking space at Las Olas River House in Fort Lauderdale costs $50,000 A single parking space at the Harbourage Place in Fort Lauderdale recently changed hands for more than $100,000."
"The first car condos are pre-construction priced from $155,000 to the $400,000s."
