Custom parking design for boutique residential apartments

LevantaPark creates bespoke solution on Cotham Road in Kew, Victoria

The LevantaPark team have been tasked with creating an innovative parking design for a brand new luxury apartment building in Melbourne’s prestigious Kew.


When designing this boutique inner-city development, the project’s architects had to balance the developer’s need to maximise leasable space with the local council’s requirements for parking.

Working within the tight layout of the building’s site meant that a conventional parking solution – using ramps to get vehicles in and out of the parking area – simply wasn’t an option. Instead, LevantaPark combined two technologies to create the ideal custom parking solution.

Car lift or car stackers?

Innovative design combines car lift with semi-auto parking system

The first element of LevantaPark’s design was the installation of a Totalmove car lift. With its ability to carry the driver on board the vehicle while it’s being stored, Totalmove provided a practical solution without needing ramps.

On-board safety for residents and users was assured thanks to Totalmove’s comprehensive safety features, including its photoelectric barriers, on-board operator control panel, 2.5m high safety guard, and intercom system.

In the second phase, once the Totalmove deposits the vehicle on the parking level, a System Max 3 semi-automatic parking system takes the vehicle away and stores it in a custom 3 x 6 storage unit.

Capable of handling vehicles weighing up to 2,000kg each, the System Max 3 unit was ideal for accommodating the maximum possible number of parking places available in a small area.
