Inside a $300,000 Robotic Parking Spot in New York City

CNBC journalist Ray Parisi captured incredible footage of a robotic attendant parking a car in a garage under a New York City building where parking spots start at $300,000 and go up from there.

Hidden deep below some of New York City’s most luxurious apartment buildings is an exclusive world of futuristic parking spaces where high-end vehicles are parked and retrieved by robotic parking system.

Drivers enter this high-end parking system onto a specialized platform that will lower the car into the subterranean garage and rotate it 180° so that it faces towards the exit. This way, when the driver retrieves the car, they do not have to do anything but drive forward.

Now it’s turning the vehicle 180 degrees so it’s facing the opposite direction that way when the owner retrieves it the car comes out facing the exit so the rich people who park here never have to put their cars in reverse. 

This particular spot was part of a $9.45 million home purchase package.

This subterranean car lair, where no humans are allowed, is located in NYC at 121 E 22nd St deep below a luxury 140-unit condo developed by Toll Brothers. Just this month a buyer picked up a $300K spot along with the condo’s highest priced apartment a five-bedroom duplex in a package deal that cost $9.45 million.
