If my readers will indulge me as this posting is NOT related to Denver real estate; once in a while I desire to go off topic geographically.
A few months ago when I was clearing out my house of 27+ years as it had sold, I ran across a pair of Porsche Design Sunglasses. During the early 1980’s when introduced; they were the pinnacle of design and at the time luxury priced, low $100’s (prior I was a fan of Vaurent, the sunglasses of choice for skiing). Living in NYC the Porsche sunglasses were a must have; a black metal frame and most impressive interchangeable lenses with a carrying case reminiscant of Porsche automobile designs.
Well fast-forward a generation. Porsche Design continues to design products (their retail stores are akin to a candy store for design aficionados like myself). Thus I was thrilled and desired to discuss a listing from our Engel & Volkers Miami , Florida shop. a never lived in condo at the beachfront The Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles (Miami) Florida. I will save the suspense, the piece d’ resistance; the car elevator allowing you to park and keep an eye on your car within your condo. The following video via YouTube gives new meaning to having an attached garage: The Dezervator.
The following is from the sales brochure. If any interest please reach out to me and I will do an introduction with the listing broker:
