Nicole Kidman has a car elevator

Nicole Kidman’s new building

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban just shelled out $10 million for a new apartment in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. Why is this news? Because their unit includes a god damn car elevator (pic here). Finally, science figured out a way to avoid having to make face-to-face contact with the mouth-breathers that ride in lower class “poor people” elevators that you can’t drive your car onto. It’s about damn time. From Mavrix:

Kidman and Urban bought a duplex unit that measures 3,248 square feet and includes 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and two city view loggias. The main living spaces are located on the unit’s upper floor and include a 20-foot by 22-foot living room with western views over the Hudson River towards New Jersey, and a combination dining room and a gourmet kitchen with folding oiled teak panels that when closed conceal the kitchen equipment.

14 of the building’s 16 apartments, come with a private 300 square foot “En-Suite Sky Garage™”, accessed by driving one’s luxury automobile into a giant key-lock elevator that lifts the car up to the same level as the the apartment to which it is deeded.

In related news, to get to my apartment on the 3rd floor of my building, sometimes I also press the button for the 2nd floor. The longer I’m in the elevator, the more it feels like it’s taking me up to my swanky penthouse bachelor pad and not the 410-square-foot studio I share with my mother. *hangs head in shame*
