Porsche Design Tower

It's been almost a year since we last heard about the Porsche Design Tower just north of Miami Beach in Sunny Isles, Fla., and while construction of the building apparently hasn't even started yet, we get another look at the luxury apartment building thanks to a segment on Rock Center with Brian Williams.

The allure of this 57-story skyscraper is its glass-encased car elevator, which is shown in the video as an animation. This certainly won't be the first luxury residence featuring a car elevator with en suite parking, but it will be the first to allow the driver to ride along with the car as it travels from the ground floor to the specific unit and vice versa. When parked in the apartment, the car becomes one of the unit's many focal points as it is visible behind a glass wall.

In addition to the car elevators, the Porsche Design Tower will have everything expected of a Miami Beach-area dwelling with a Collins Ave address. Each of the 132 oversized suites has a balcony swimming pool, and prices are expected to be up to $9 million per unit.
