Neue Grand, the new Growland developed residential building on St Kilda Road, is seeking to implement Australia's first sky garage.

Residents will be able to showcase their luxury cars in a glass display port that sits adjacent to the main living area.

The 20-storey building with 19 residential levels is designed by award-winning architecture firm Rothelowman and will feature just one apartment per level with a sprawling 350 square metre floor plan.

With an average price of $6 million, each full-floor apartment will offer a minimum of three bedrooms.

Residents will drive their vehicle into the German engineered automated parking system from the ground floor, where license plate recognition allows for secure entry.

Once exiting the vehicle, residents will scan a pass to their own lift, where one of two sides will be assigned to the individual.

Protecting their privacy, the lift takes the resident to their own apartment without revealing the dwelling’s floor number.

Meanwhile, the high-speed German engineered automated parking system will automatically send the resident’s vehicle skywards and park it in a private double-space display port in the apartment.

There's also basement parking for residents’ ‘everyday’ car.

Residents are greeted by concierge in the entrance, and once at their level will access their apartments via ultra-modern fingerprint recognition software. Inside the residences, blinds and lights will be controlled through high-tech home automation.

The prized penthouse apartment will have exclusive access to a private rooftop and garden offering city and bay views, with the opportunity to combine the top two floors for a palatial double-story residence with a striking internal staircase.

Founding principal of Rothelowman Shane Rothe said Neue Grand is speaking to a market that is yet to be satisfied – discerning downsizers looking for new residences that retain the design opulence and scale of their former homes.

“These homes will appeal to purchasers wanting premium quality and exclusivity,” Rothe said.

“The ability to showcase premium cars is a rare opportunity in Australia. These apartments will also tap into a new middle-aged professional market made up of people who are downsizing earlier for the convenience of lifestyle. Easy access to the gym, storage within the residences for golf clubs, and the selectivity of only one apartment per floor will appeal to their mindset alongside the chance to exhibit their high-end vehicles.

“Growland is an innovative developer who consistently pushes the envelope to create unique product in the built environment.”

Growland CEO Ronald Chan says Neue Grand and its rare feat of specialised engineering is reflective of the company’s commitment to innovation and exceeding expectations.

“As developers, we are always looking at how we can improve and expand our way of thinking,” said Chan.

“We want to create projects that set a benchmark and continue to surpass the realm of possibility; our aim is always to challenge the status quo and to approach new ideas with enthusiasm rather than with caution.

Plans for the sky garage are awaiting final approval.
