A very Jetson future is here, and it’s live on television. Paramount Miami Worldcenter was featured on CBS Sunday Morning for its flying carport amenity.

Developer Dan Kodsi has modified the condo tower’s design to fit a 5,000-square-foot skyport on top of the 60-story, 530-unit building. While it would be years before flying cars reach Miami, the condo association could vote to convert what will be a rooftop pool into a rooftop landing pad for passenger drones.

Kodsi told CBS that worsening traffic makes the Jetsons-style living appealing. “We just don’t have room to grow our roads anymore,” he said.

When asked if buyers take it seriously, he said: “Some question it. I don’t think they understand it enough.”

Kodsi is co-developing Paramount with Worldcenter developers Art Falcone and Nitin Motwani. It’s set to be delivered this year. [CBS]Katherine Kallergis
