A couple of decades ago, having a built-in microwave, along with a dishwasher, was the epitome of living in the future when you bought a new condominium. Then came the idea of adding in swimming pools to the roof, and high-tech fitness centers, all of which were welcome additions. However, with all of the wonderful and amazing technology that’s available today, things are changing rapidly in the condo world. Let’s look at one of the premier examples of high-end technology integrating with condos to see just what is in store for people now and in the future.
This tower, which is still under construction and is set to open next year, has an ingenious elevator system called the Dezervator, named after the tower’s developer Gil Dezer. This is an elevator the likes of which you’ve never seen, and probably never imagined, before. It doesn’t just take you up to your floor… the glass elevator takes you and your vehicle up to your floor. The elevator then places you and your car in your elevated garage right next to your unit.
Think about just how beneficial this could be. You don’t have to leave your car in a parking garage, hoping that it will be safe. Even though most of the towers in the area have very secure garages, most people still have that little worry in the back of their minds that something could happen to their vehicle. This worry is exacerbated when they have a high-end vehicle. In addition, think about just how much easier it will be to transport everything inside after you’ve gone out shopping. It offers convenience and privacy that you simply won’t find elsewhere, at least for now.
You can be sure that this type of technology will start to make its way into more and more buildings as they go up in Miami, as well as the rest of the world. Instead of “wasting” space on additional parking, or not having parking at all, they can roll everything right into the building. This could mean they can develop more units and make much better use of the space that would have been spent on the parking facility.
Creating this design was not easy though. Dezer had to gather a number of the best elevator specialists on the planet to create this design. They also had to go through a number of different tests and safety certifications to make sure the elevator would work, was fast enough, and was safe enough for people to use. They actually built a test building (nine stories high) in Chicago to make sure that it would be functional when it went into actual use.
The addition of this technology, as well as other new types of tech is good news for buyers. People want to live in homes that are on the cutting edge of technology, and the developers are listening. Who knows what other robotic wonders are waiting for buyers just around the corner!
