Design Boom, a website about all things beautiful and unique, has this gallery on Volkswagen's Autostadt facility: two 16-story silos used as a temporary parking lot when a finished vehicle is waiting for its owner. From the article:
the 48-meter tall silos are composed of glass and galvanized steel, illuminated by night.
a conveyor belt system transports finished cars directly from the adjacent manufacturing plant to the towers' basement. from there, they are lifted into position via mechanical arms that rotate and run along a central beam, moving vehicles in and out of their bays at a speed of two meters per second.
Here is the piece on Wikipedia.
