Developer Dan Kodsi is planning for a future with passenger drones – also known as flying cars.

Kodsi is modifying plans for Paramount Miami Worldcenter to fit a 5,000-square-foot skyport on top of the 60-story, 530-unit tower. Residents would be able to land on top of the building in vertical takeoff and landing vehicles, enter Paramount through a sky lobby and ride down to their unit in a glass-enclosed elevator.

But flying cars are a ways away from reaching Miami, at least 10 to 15 years. The condo association would have to build out the skyport of the downtown Miami tower.
