Floridians are no strangers to hurricanes and the wealthy of Miami know just how to protect their prized automobiles from the impending Hurricane Irma.
Gil Dezer developed the 60-story Porsche Design Tower to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, and now he says there are more than $25 million worth of supercars tucked inside.
"One of my good friends is the owner of the local Lamborghini dealership and he asked if he can store the cars," in the building, Dezer, president of Dezer Development, told CNBC's "Power Lunch" on Friday. "I said, 'Sure, no problem.'"
Built to a code set after Hurricane Andrew, Dezer says the building is "going to be one of the safest places" during Hurricane Irma, which is one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in a century. Dezer's building has high-impact glass, like that of a car's windshield, which can withstand "180 mph winds," he says.
Flooding is not a concern either, as Dezer noted that the first apartment is 70 feet off the ground.
"That takes out any chance of getting wet or the cars flooding, which would be a total loss of really expensive vehicles," he said.
The next-generation building has parking spots right next to each unit, utilizing a special elevator to lift tenants and their cars to apartments. Dezer said he has sold all but six of the 132 apartment units.
