Auto House Planned In Overtown, Will Include Car Galleries & Social Club

Louis Birdman and Jay Massirman are planning to build Auto House, where owners will be able to showcase and store their high-end cars.

The project will include five levels of auto galleries, where owners can showcase their cars. They are being sold fee-simple, and can accommodate 2-8 cars.

There will also be a robotic storage facility called Auto Suites. Cameras will allow owners to monitor their cars online, and the facility will be climate controlled, hurricane resistant, and have 24-hour security.

A members only social club will be located on the penthouse level. Autogallery owners will get one year complimentary membership.

Birdman told Toys for Boys that there is demand for the facility, and several units have already been reserved.

The project site is 375 NW 7th Street, next to I-95 in Overtown.

So Overtown goes from a place to where I was afraid to drive my car to a place where my car couldn’t get past the velvet rope.

I don’t understand it either.

50 years from now Overtown will exist in name only. High end construction will continue to grow north and west of Downtown erasing the current residents of the area. Much like what happened in Baltimore around the waterfront area. It’s a harsh fact but reality nevertheless.

Genuinely hope everything’s hunky-dory in Miami 50 years from now, but there are a lot of factors threatening that.

Completely agree. You can already see that change beginning.. neighborhoods change, particularly every inner city in America.
People looking for affordable housing will need to move to small towns.

Wow, this was my business plan project in my Entrepreneurship class in college almost 18 years ago. Except I called it The AutoVault. My plan was to put it at an old RC Cola plant in Wynwood when Wynwood was just a bunch of warehouses. Would love to contact my professor and show him it was a viable business plan, he thought I was out of my mind, but still gave me an A.

So ridiculous… I know you shouldn’t tell people what to do with their money. But do people really have this much cash to waste? @_@ (rolls eye)

This is the embodiment of the wealth gap of Miami. A luxury condo for your Lamborghini will be two blocks from a big homeless shelter. It doesn’t make much sense to me… But maybe they’ll visit People’s Soul Food Restaurant next door.

The land in these areas is too expensive. A project like this is possible in areas that are close and/or easily accessible to affluent neighborhoods that have relatively low land costs. The post fails to mention that they intend to offer a valet service. You can have your car picked up or dropped off at your residence.

Basically, just like some of us come on websites like this to admire the architecture in buildings most of us can’t afford to live in, some people admire the engineering in vehicles most people can’t afford as well.

It’s free to look at buildings. Curious how much this membership will cost…can’t be cheap if owners are only getting one year free.

Shouldn’t a person that have enough money to buy a 200,000$ or more car enough space in his/her dwelling to keep them? ….safe

Robotic garage facility!!! Haven’t people learn their lesson yet with SoBe and Brickell House?

The cars will be showcase for the homeless and the unemployed to look at, how generous!!!!

The Club will provide free erectile disfunction pills since most of his members are senile rich guys that love to impress bimbos with their engines

If you’re young and have a fancy car you will drive it and not keep it in a museum

This facility will display more valuable man made creations than the Perez Museum of Empty Art also known as PAM …and at no high cost to the taxpayers

You can’t be serious. The homeless will be sitting across the street staring at this building. The poor always get shafted in Miami. Oh, but you don’t give a flying f##k now do you?

I was NOT serious, I was sarcastic and you don’t have the perception nor the manners ( the F word is not polite even if you hide it on simbols) and my perception is that you have inner anger that clouds your mind not to see that my comments were humorous and I probably do care more than you, since I volunteer on that community!!!!

No
I wouldn’t race a child with poor sense of humor and to use the F word will be a disapoiment and prove to me that I was a failure as a mother
Don’t be angry, use that negative energy in having some humor or learn the difference between sarcasm and a true statement
Or you will. It survive in this blog
