Miami Condo Prepares Landing Pad for Flying Cars

•, by Mish

This George Jetson story is so absurd that I would have guessed Elon Musk or Trump was behind it. Nope.

Here's an announcement that's safe to mock Flying cars haven't landed yet, but this $600 million Miami condo development is preparing for their arrival.

Flying cars are still years away, but residents may eventually be able to fly them home to the $600 million Paramount Miami Worldcenter, a 540-unit condominium building. The 60-story residential tower in downtown Miami has a private skyport, which it says is designed in anticipation for flying cars, or vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicles.

There are some major drawbacks to the skyport: Cars can only take off and land there, and currently there is no VTOL vehicle that is commercially available. "We have built the 60th floor SkyDeck pool so its floor will rise, transforming itself into a take-off and landing pad," says Daniel Kodsi, Paramount Miami Worldcenter's CEO-developer.
