Luxury Car Condo to Break Ground in California
Construction drawings are now being finalized for the Monterey Motorsport Park planned for Monterey, California. The four-building, 90,000-square-foot complex will break ground in August with an expected occupancy date sometime during the second quarter of 2019.
The exclusive, luxury garage-condo facility and car community-located along Highway 68 adjacent to Monterey Regional Airport-recently received unanimous approval from the City of Monterey’s Planning Department.
“The Monterey Peninsula has long revered fine automobiles and collectibles,” said Gordon McCall of McCall Events, a member of the Monterey Motorsport Park development team that includes Borelli Investment Co. and Swenson Builders. “The picturesque beauty of a stunning exotic car or an eye-catching classic winding its way through Big Sur can create a true work of art. There are few affordable, upscale opportunities for car enthusiasts to solve the never-ending challenge of where we can enjoy our passion for classic cars and motorcycles away from our home garage – if we’re fortunate enough to even have a garage on the space-constrained Monterey Peninsula.”
The Monterey Motorsport Park will feature 86 units ranging from slightly less than 700 square feet to nearly 2,600 square feet. There’s also possibility of combining units to create even larger spaces. The complex is fully fenced, with abundant lighting, access-controlled entry, video coverage of the entire perimeter and unit entrances, and proactive 24×7 monitoring and guarding, according to developers. The garage-condos are available to purchase, rather than lease.
The building design features clean lines and stone wall treatments. Soaring ceilings of up to 25 feet provide plenty of room for a mezzanine in every unit. These spaces-13 feet above the garage floor-will be accessible via an interior staircase, and owners are planning to customize them into personal offices or leisure retreats for weekend entertaining or relaxing with friends. Connections will be provided for owners who want to arrange for Internet access, a phone or cable TV hookup.
Oversized rollup doors ensure that a number of the condos can accommodate larger vehicles, such as motorhomes and boats.
Businesses are also welcome to purchase a space within the unique community. The primary qualifications for acceptance are that a business must be low impact in terms of the amount of water it consumes, the traffic it creates, and the parking spaces required for employees and customers.
“Monterey Motorsport Park is the solution on so many levels for motorsports aficionados and car collectors,” McCall said. “I honestly don’t think a buyer will ever regret investing here. But those who don’t take advantage of this opportunity will really have missed the boat.”
