A smart car

Miami developer Santiago Vanegas is planning an eco-friendly condo building in West Brickell that will come complete with an optional smart car for every buyer, Miami Today reported.

The building, to be built at 1775 Southwest Third Avenue within a year, should include 190 LEED Gold-certified units which will also feature iPods, innovative appliances and “smart” gadgets to control heat, air conditioning and electrical systems, Vanegas told Miami Today.

By providing smart cars, as the microcars manufactured by Daimler Chrysler are known, the developers also hope to limit the amount of parking space needed. They will propose the city allow only 20 normal size parking spaces at the development, which would fit 40 Smart Cars. Alternately, they might consider installing a lift system that can stack cars vertically. [Miami Today] –Sanna Chu
