Sneak Peek: Vancouver’s First Luxury Car Condo

Trove, a luxury car storage condominium facility, seriously updates the traditional garage.

The concept of Trove illustrates the ever-growing auto market in Vancouver, which was just named the new luxury car capital of North America. No longer will the city’s car enthusiasts have to meet in parking lots or coffee shops to talk and tinker: instead, Trove offers gearheads a space that’s part garage, part luxury condo, to stow their favourite playthings. Coinciding with the Luxury and Supercar Weekend, Trove has just officially launched presales, with construction starting early 2018.

With Vancouver real estate being positively bonkers, it is challenging for car collectors with multiple vehicles to house their wheels safely. “I have no room in my garage with four children and toys everywhere,” says Michael Hungerford, car aficionado and developer of this project, an idea that has been three years in the making. Hungerford has been looking to give this passion, that many Vancouverites share, a sense of place. Trove is the first of its kind in Vancouver, but after a decade of popularity in the U.S., this trend is popping up across Canada with similar facilities available in Calgary, Ottawa and Toronto.
