The most amazing parking spaces in the world
Nothing is better than getting a good parking space, but could there be a greatest space? An online article lists the top ten listed below, but we believe our partners have the best parking space possible…
It’s dry, safe, ridiculously cheap considering its inner city parking and there’s a lift that delivers them and their vehicle straight to their office door… check ours out at the bottom of the list.
10) Parkhaus Engelenschanze
Most parking garages are dark, and claustrophobic. Not this one in Münster, Germany.. The walls are glass, and there’s a running creek with a waterfall in there, too.
9) Lincoln Road Parking Garage
Take one look at Miami’s wall-free, multi-use supergarage and you’d say “wow that must have been absurdly expensive for a parking garage.” You would be right, to the tune of $65 million.
8) In a yacht
Only a total loser parks his McLaren at the docks and then takes his yacht for a cruise. Real multi billionaires buy 158-foot UltraLuxum trimarans and park their supercars inside. Of course, it’s just a concept so far, but plenty of yachts have garages for cars. Few are quite this stylish, though.
7) McMurdo Station
Only a handful of regular cars have ever driven on Antarctica. That means McMurdo Station, the continent’s biggest base, has the most exclusive parking spaces on Earth.
6) In a mountainside
This garage in Herder, Switzerland is sunken into the mountainside, and looks out over an alpine valley with five glassed-in concrete cubes.
5) In your living room
Holger Schubert won Architectural Digest’s Design Driven contest in 2009, as well as an award by Maserati for parking his Ferrari 512BBi in his living room overlooking Brentwood, California. His neighbours hated him for it.
4) The Ferris Bueller Garage
You know 370 Beech Street in Highland Park, Illinois as Cameron’s dad’s house in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It recently went up for auction for $2.3 million. If you have the means…
3) The VW Tower
In VW’s massive Autostadt (Car City) in Wolfsburg, Germany, new cars awaiting delivery are stored in two 200-foot-tall towers with lifting platforms. There is no cooler parking garage in the world.
2) On an Aircraft Carrier
Of course, you could also have your car park on an aircraft carrier. At $4.5 billion, the USS Ronald Reagan (pictured) is probably the most expensive parking lot ever made.
1) On The Moon
You have to be really cool to get to park your car on the moon. The lunar rover is still up there, probably with a million bucks in space-tickets by now. Technically not the world, but it’s orbiting the world so we’ll give it an exemption.
All of the partners at Gilligan Sheppard bike to work – and we believe they have the best parking space possible – right in the foyer of our offices!
