A Former Parking Garage 12 East 13th Street — now revamped as an eight-unit condominium building that went on sale today — is staying true to its roots with a robot-manned parking system.

Created by Park Plus, the amenity enables residents to pull into the private first-floor parking entrance, hop out of their cars and have the vehicle lifted to the second floor and parked there by a robot. When they want to head out, residents can also pick up their cars within 30 seconds via smartphone.

The rest of the building has undergone quite the overhaul as well, with developers DHA Capital and Continental Properties adding four stories and a new brick facade with wide windows.

The property, designed by architects CetraRuddy, currently has five full-floor units on the market. The pricing breakdown, provided exclusively to The Real Deal, is $12.75 million for the four-bedroom fourth floor, $7.5 million for the three-bedroom seventh floor, $13.78 million for the three-bedroom eighth floor duplex, $18.95 million for the four-bedroom ninth floor duplex and $28.5 million for the five-bedroom triplex penthouse. [Curbed]Julie Strickland
