TheCarLoft: Rob Van Winkle's Live-In Social Garage Project
Motor Authority: Why is Rob interested in this project?
Hans: He collects cars, thinks it is a great concept and is partner and owner. We know each other very well, he was my artist in the 90s when I was with EMI. We drive cars together every week and race cars when we can.
Motor Authority: What is the social aspect of TheCarLoft all about?
Hans: People that have collectible cars or supercars, and want to store them in a beautiful location, clean them, do minor work and spend some time with their car friends--take drives, watch games and use the loft for weekend stays or as a temporary office. Other projects are only storage, with no social component. This is the first of its kind.
Motor Authority: What other amenities will the community feature?
Hans: There will be a central pool and barbecue area, an office with a manager and 24-hour security.
Motor Authority: What sort of repair work/maintenance activities will be possible? Can you install a lift, for instance?
Hans: Car lifts, high-voltage outlets, drainage, all will be possible. Only welding and hard body work will not be allowed.
Motor Authority: How much will the lofts cost?
Hans: The price range is from $189,000 to $230,000 depending on size. The floorplans and prices are also on the website.
