Developer Michael Dezer has resolved one of the drawbacks to condo living: having to park your car in the garage and then take an elevator to your unit, all while carrying groceries and herding the children or pets.
To say Dezer is a car guy is a massive understatement—he has car museums filled with hundreds of his personally owned vehicles in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and Las Vegas.
So when he built the sleek, black, 60-story Porsche Design Tower directly on the beach in Sunny Isles in 2016, Dezer added a distinctive feature: the “Dezervators.” Three massive elevators whisk even full-size SUVs aloft at 800 feet per minute from the three-story lobby directly to a garage in the owner’s condominium unit, where the vehicle then resides—and in the case of collectible cars, can be displayed—behind a glass wall.
The owners of this 3,415-square-foot, three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath unit on the building’s 20th level recently completed a $1 million renovation—including the installation of an all-black Poggenpohl kitchen, shagreen doors, and marble flooring—then fully furnished the unit with Restoration Hardware pieces.
Its 10-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass walls throughout ensure a great view of the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway. The open floor plan allows the owners to converse with family or guests in the lush living room or seated at the breakfast bar while preparing a meal in the spacious kitchen. The living room also affords a great view of the vehicles in the unit’s two-car garage, if so desired, though they can be tucked behind a curtain.
The terrace is ideal for relaxing to the sounds of the waves on the beach below, especially while enjoying the unit’s private pool. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet, a sitting area, and an unobstructed view of the ocean. The oversized master bath features a large step-in shower with dual shower heads, as well as a soaking tub and dual vanities.
Building amenities include a lobby restaurant, 200 feet of beach frontage, private wine lockers, 24-hour concierge service, a ballroom, a spa, and a heated pool.
