A high-rise in Singapore is offering buyers "en suite sky garages," a system that uses an elevator to deliver cars right into homeowners' premium living spaces. Instead of the car living in an underground garage, these apartments make cars a focal point, parking them behind a glass wall off the living room.
To park, residents pull into a designated spot and then use a biometric thumb scan to send the car to the appropriate apartment.
The Hamilton Scott building's website offers 54 three-bedroom, 3.5-bath apartments and two "uber luxurious penthouses." The regular apartments are reportedly listed for $7.5 million while the four-car penthouse suites ask $24 million.
Check out the video below to see the elevator in action.
