At more than $3,600 per square foot, it’d be pricey even by the pricey standards of Manhattan apartments. But you can’t live here, unless you drive an RV. A private garage measuring 12 by 23 feet is set to go on sale this fall for a cool $1 million, making it the city’s first seven-figure parking spot. So what makes this parking space worth six times more than a typical family home?
“It’s for someone who wants complete privacy,” Prudential Douglas Elliman Vice Chairman Dolly Lenz, told the Post. With a curb cut at the street and a private entrance to the building, you can go in and out virtually undetected — perfect for celebrities and camera shy moguls. The spot is only big enough for one car but can be “duplexed” to fit two if the buyer installs a car elevator. Because what’s a few thousand dollars when you’re already throwing down a million? The space is expected to go to one of the residents of the building, an eight-story prewar loft that is currently being converted into six luxury condominiums. But the parking spot isn’t the only perk of shacking up in this not-so-humble abode. The building will also feature showers that spray water laced with vitamin C and aloe and intelligent lighting systems that provide residents with a better night’s rest.
