Sydney apartment launched with its own car elevator Written By Robb Report
For some car enthusiasts, keeping their pride and joy locked away in a garage makes no sense. Why have this perfect piece of machinery if you can’t admire it, even when it’s off the road?
Here is the perfect solution – a new development in Sydney’s Pyrmont has the option of a car lift so you can bring your luxury wheels right into your domain.
The Paragon of Pyrmont development is described as ‘never-before-seen luxury in the heart of Sydney’. It features a selection of 1 and 3 bedroom apartments and exclusive 3, 4 and 5 bedroom townhouses. The jewel in the crown is the Treasury, a mammoth four-bedroom, six-bathroom townhouse.
It’s in this property that a lift to take the car from the garage into a first-floor room is an optional extra in the development.
Coined the ‘Maserati bat cave’, it has gained a huge amount of attention from car lovers worldwide, according to Thirdi Group’s Luke Berry.
“From a concept point of view it’s captured people’s imagination,” he told Robb Report Australia.

The garages are equipped with smart home automation systems which will recognise when the resident’s car is approaching and open the door and turn on the lights automatically.
In the five-level townhouses there are Italian marble mosaics in the bathrooms, Gaggenau appliances in the kitchen and Rogerseller-style ‘touch activated’ cabinetry.
The private rooftop terrace will provide a sanctuary not often seen in the heart of the city and the gas BBQ and fridge will ensure it’s an entertainer’s delight.
Despite all the opulence, it’s that car lift and ‘bat cave’ that has garnered the most attention. “It will be the first of its kind for this style of car lift,” Berry says.
And if you’re not sure your car is up to scratch for day/night admiration, there is an option to buy a Maserati Quattroporte with the Treasury and car lift option.
The Treasury residence is officially ‘price on application’, however Berry says including the car lift and Maserati, it will be around the $6m mark.
