Luxury Miami Developments Now Come With Sky Ports for Flying Cars

Paramount

Miami is now cleared for takeoff—launching its first three luxury residences with their own rooftop landing pads.


The Paramount Miami Worldcenter—a 27-acre mixed-use super project that claims to be the most amenitized property in the nation—promises the world’s first flying-car dock, or sky port, on the penthouse level of its 60-story tower.


Its builders are betting that personal transport drones built by Uber and Airbus will soon whisk pleasure-seekers across the skies of Miami—and drop them off back at their doorsteps.


“These flying-car projects are the real deal,” says Paramount Ventures CEO Dan Kodsi, who is the developer of Paramount and also a recreational pilot. “They are funded. NASA is involved. It’s not just science fiction anymore.” (Paramount, where 500-plus units range from $700,000 to $11 million, will be completed in 2019 and is already 80 percent sold.)


In the meantime, two other new developments will invite owners to commute glamorously via helicopter.


At the new Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach—where 126 condos designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni will open early next year on seven and a half bayside acres—a floating helipad allows for quick drop-offs. An awaiting Frauscher Lido 1017 yacht will then shuttle residents to their doorsteps (the project has 36 private docks) in three minutes flat. Units range from $2 million to over $40 million.


But nothing quite compares to the view from the helipad at Zaha Hadid’s much-lauded One Thousand Museum.


It will double as the grandest ersatz observation deck in Miami when it debuts early next year, 62 stories above the bay. The 83-unit project, which topped out last February, offers half- and full-floor units from $5.8 million to $20 million.
