Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UPFRONT - paramount­mi­ami.com

HOPPING in to a fly­ing car à la 1960s car­toon The Jet­sons could be a re­al­ity in a decade, ac­cord­ing to prop­erty de­vel­oper Dan Kodsi, who de­signed the new 60-storey Para­mount Mi­ami World­cen­ter with a 5,000sq ft (465 sqm) Sky­port for fly­ing au­to­mo­biles. “The fu­ture of trans­porta­tion will be here within the next 10 to 15 years, and ur­ban avi­a­tion is closer to re­al­ity than you might ex­pect,” says Kodsi.

The de­sign fea­tures a glass el­e­va­tor to the lux­ury tower’s pri­vate rooftop, where res­i­dents could be picked up and dropped off by air­borne ve­hi­cles.
