Parking is quite a challenge in metropolitan cities. Now futuristic parking lots, hidden deep beneath some of New York’s luxury apartment buildings, can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, UKTN reported.
If you want to secure a parking spot in these VIP areas, parking lot prices range from $450,000 to $5,90,000.
However, these parking spaces are only accessible to residents of buildings. A parking space attached to a $16 million apartment was sold for $750,000 (Rs 6,12,69,183).
The news website found buildings in Manhattan offering spots for sale in a Robo parking garage. The first is located in New York’s Gramercy Park, which offers 24 automated parking spaces. The self-parking system made in Germany can lift and shake cars.
Not only that the cars deliver cars automatically. All you have to do is swipe RFID tags and the car will be delivered in about 2 minutes and 15 seconds.
“The car is turned for you by the robot,” Lori Alf, a resident, told UKTN.
“As crazy as it may sound, $300,000 for a residential parking space is considered a reasonable price in New York City,” says Senada Adzem, a Florida-based real estate agent with Douglas Elliman.
“The overall lack of parking in the city, an ongoing problem with no end in sight, will only escalate such prices,” Adzem added.
These Robo car parks offer absolute privacy. These luxury properties house celebrities. “They liked the idea that you didn’t have to address a valet or valet, or no one could get right behind you,” realtor Julie Pham told UKTN.
According to a Bloomberg report, car ownership in NYC rose a whopping 224 percent last year as fears of Covid infection forced citizens to abandon the subway.
