Porsche Design Tower

The Porsche Design Tower is a unique residential apartment block that lets residents keep vehicles in-unit instead of in a ground-level parking lot. The 56-story building built in 2016 offers 132 residences with three to five bedrooms. Located on Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, the tower is now a well-known landmark and coveted address.

The Building

The Porsche Design Tower’s standout feature is the Dezervator – a one-of-a-kind elevator that lifts residents’ vehicles to their units hundreds of feet above the ground. The core of the building has a large hollow shaft that lets residents move their prized cars and vans to and from ground level and their apartments – part of Porsche’s philosophy to keep vehicles and their owners close to each other.

Porsche describes the Design Tower’s Dezervator as a robotic lift. Residents begin by driving their vehicles onto a circular rotating pad. The machine then orientates their car to face the Dezervator lift shaft. The door of the Dezervator opens, and a sled jack is released under the vehicle, lifting it via all four wheels and pulling it into the machine. During this process, the driver can remain in their car.

Once the vehicle is inside the Dezervator, the door closes behind, and the elevator moves upwards through the building. The Dervator then follows a pre-programmed trajectory to the residents’ Sky Garage, unloading the car via the retractable winch sled.

Some Porsche Design Tower residences have space for multiple vehicles. The Dezervator can arrange vehicles in specific parking spaces using its sled without the driver having to switch on the engine. It can then retrieve them when required.

Naturally, the Porsche Design Tower offers a range of additional amenities designed to elevate residents’ quality of life. For instance, there is an on-site private restaurant serving the finest cuisine. Chilled wine lockers are available on-site, and an outdoor lounge facing the ocean residents can use any time. Other amenities include golf and racing simulators, a private cinema, a beauty salon, and a 24-hour concierge. The gym comes with a multi-gym machine for pull-downs and rows, numerous treadmills, cross-trainers, and hip flexion machines. The race simulator has space for two people and a multi-purpose club room with stadium seating.

Barcelona F.C. veteran and Argentinian soccer superstar, Lionel Messi, is said to own a condominium in the development. Other wealthy and famous residents include Mexican billionaire Carlos Peralta Quintero and Carlos “CarGo” González, the star player of the Colorado Rockies.

Nearby, the Porsche Design Tower offers easy access to Aventura Mall and Bal Harbour Shops. The building is also close to 200 feet of sugar-sand Atlantic Ocean frontage, allowing residents to access stunning nearby locations to swim, bathe their feet, and enjoy the views out to sea. An oceanfront ballroom with a kitchen is available for functions for dozens of guests.

The Porsche Design Tower also offers residents a car concierge. Homeowners can get their vehicles valeted and maintained with ease. Concierges can then use the Dezervator to return cars to residents once finished.
