Developers across the country are taking into account the changing habits of their wealthy buyers, including a shift to electric cars.

In South Florida, a number of luxury condo developers are including charging stations as amenities, including Mast Capital, Ugo Colombo and Verzasca Group.

At 3900 Alton in Miami Beach, Mast Capital is incorporating multiple electric car charging stations and a “Tesla house car” that will take residents to and from the project’s beach club, according to the Wall Street Journal’s Mansion Global. The eight-story condo building, designed by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill, is slated to be completed in 2019.

Developers are banking on the rise in electric car use amid predictions that sales of electric cars will represent 35 percent of worldwide car sales by 2040, the Journal said, citing a Bloomberg study. Battery prices are also expected to fall.

Louver House, also a Mast Capital project, will have six electric vehicle charging stations for 12 units.

Over in Bay Harbor Islands, Verzasca Group is offering its buyers charging spots for residents of Pearl House and Le Jardin. Others in Miami-Dade include Palazzo del Sol on Fisher Island; Yoo at Metropica, developed by Joseph Kavana; Ugo Colombo’s Brickell Flatiron and Blue Jay Capital’s 121 Marina. [WSJ] – Katherine Kallergis
