Looking for a parking spot in a crowded city can be a nightmare, and even though this problem can be solved by buying or renting a space for your car, one upscale apartment building in Singapore is really stepping up the ante by offering buyers a special treat with garages connected to their homes.
Enter the pricey world of Singapore's Hamilton Scotts 'Sky Garage Apartments', which includes one elevator for residents and another for their vehicles.
The biometrically controlled lift delivers your car right up to your apartment in an area enclosed by glass situated right beside the living room.
Of course the 'Sky Garage Apartments' come at steep prices, which start at US$7.5million for a two-car garage home and reach US$24 million for the penthouses that boast four parking bays.
However, the company that owns the apartments believes there's a market for these luxurious homes.
"These buyers are very discerning, they have seen a lot," says Leny Suparman, co-founder and CEO of KOP Properties. "They are well exposed in the world, so they are looking for something that is unique and different."
