Luxury garage condominiums take hobbies to the next level

By: | | Share Tweet Email

Of the trends we’ve seen in the last 3-5 years, none has been more prominent than the need to simplify. Personalities like Marie Kondo help us declutter our homes. Modern design and Scandinavian influences are ushering in the appeal of the mid-century ideal of “returning to nature.” People everywhere are looking at luxury more holistically to make informed choices about what will not only benefit themselves fiscally but emotionally and spiritually. If you don’t believe us…here’s a study from our global affiliate Luxury Portfolio International to prove it.

With all that being said, when you downsize or rightsize your life, hobbies you enjoy shouldn’t fall by the wayside. Enter luxury garage condominiums. These fortresses of leisure and lifestyle have been gaining momentum over the last several years as more and more have sought urban residences or wanted to expand on a collection without adding more square footage to their primary or secondary residence. But labeling them as simply “storage” is a mistake. Luxury garages aren’t just where your prized possessions live, they’re where you go to immerse yourself in your favorite pastime and where you can share it with peers, family and friends. This means that beyond temperature control, units can also feature full kitchens, living areas for gathering, lofts, lifts, bathrooms and more.
