When you live in a crowded metropolis where parking is at a premium and you don't really want to live your expensive car out on the streets, why not park the car in your high-rise apartment?
Located on Scotts Road between Carinhill Road and Clemencau Avenue North in Singapore's scenic and vibrant Orchard neighborhood, the 30-story Hamilton Scotts boasts 54 luxurious apartments and two palatial penthouses, as well as ground floor features shared by all residents such as a pool, hot tub and a gym. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartments measure roughly 1,300 square feet each and feature all the amenities you'd expect (large balcony, access via stairs or private elevator, and superb views of the South Asian city-state), and one that you might not. Each apartment has its own "en-suite sky garage" with room for two vehicles.
Cars get between the ground and the floor on which their owners reside via one of two elevators. When coming home, residents drive their cars onto a turntable, get out (No residents riding the car elevators, presumably for liability reasons.), and press their finger against a biometric sensor that reads their fingerprint to determine where the vehicle is supposed to go. The elevator system then picks up the platform on which the car is parked, draws it into the elevator shaft, takes it up to the right floor, and pushes the platform/car combination onto the appropriate "car porch." When all is said and done, you can sit on your living room sofa and look through a big picture window at your Ferrari, Bentley or whatever. Like a boss.
