Finding a parking space near their front door will no longer be a worry for anyone lucky enough to live in the new multimillion pound, 57-storey condo planned for Miami.
Instead they can just pull into a designated space, turn off the engine and sit back and enjoy the oceanfront view as they are escalated in a glass elevator to the front door of their apartment.
The 'Jetson-esque' luxury tower will rise in Sunny Isles Beach as part of a $560million project between Germany's Porsche Design Group and a local developer, Gil Dezer.

It is the world’s first condominium complex with elevators that will take residents directly to their units while they are sitting in their cars.
'You don’t have to leave your car until you are in front of your apartment,' Juergen Gessler, CEO of Porsche Design Group, told the Miami Herald.
After the resident pulls over and switches off the engine, a robotic arm that works like an automatic plank will scoop up the car and put it into the elevator, you hope!.
Once at the desired floor, the same robotic arm will hopefully park the car, leaving the resident in front of their front door or SOMEONE'S!
