Auto condo project slated to open this summer in Carlisle
A luxury condo project designed for car collectors is slated to open this year in Carlisle.
Galbraith/Pre-Design Inc., the Carlisle-area contractor working on The Concours at Carlisle, said the plan is to open the 40-unit auto condo community by this summer. The Concours at Carlisle is part of the redevelopment of a former factory site.
The Concours is the first car-centric condo community to be built in Central Pennsylvania. Each unit in the gated community will have a multiple-car garage with an interior mezzanine overlooking large climate-controlled spaces. The designs also feature high ceilings, floor drains and water, as well as electric hookups.
Owners can customize their collection space to include heated floors, car lifts, compressed air systems and tool-bench packages, among other options.
The condo living spaces feature floor plans with multiple bedrooms and various kitchen and living room configurations.
Owners will be able to customize fixtures and finishes and add other amenities, including home theater packages, wine cellars, saunas and hot tubs. There also will be a private clubhouse for residents.
NAI CIR agent Nathan Kranz is marketing the condos. Unit prices are still in development, officials said.
Such facilities have grown in popularity among automotive collectors.
In Naperville, Ill., the Iron Gate Motor Condos complex offers luxury gated facilities on a 22-acre complex in Chicago's western suburbs. Kranz said its floor plans are similar to what the Carlisle properties will offer.
The condos in Carlisle are part of the makeover of the 48-acre former Masland factory property, purchased in 2010 by car show producers Carlisle Events. The site will soon be home to a mix of residential and commercial properties, including stores, restaurants and a hotel.
Infrastructure improvements on that site began in the fall. The building portion of the redevelopment is expected to cost $50 million to $60 million.
