THE Porsche City Centre at 29 Leng Kee Road has been rebuilt with careful and clever utilisation of space. The six-storey building with a basement carpark was constructed at a cost of $42 million by the Eurokars Group of Companies and includes the Porsche showroom on the first level, the Rolls-Royce showroom on level two, their respective workshops on levels four and five, an outdoor event space on level three, and roof-top parking on level six.
To connect all the above-ground floors, there is a pair of giant Otis car lifts - the biggest in Singapore.
They are more than eight metres long and three metres wide in order to accommodate the 20-foot-long Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase limousine. No expense was spared in the development of this flagship building, said Eurokars executive chairman Karsono Kwee.
"All this was done in the interests of our customers," he explained. "They get what they pay for."
Marble and granite are used liberally throughout the building, and even the washrooms are luxuriously outfitted. The lighting fixtures for the whole facility came up to $2 million, including the Rolls-Royce showroom's mood lighting created by 4,600 bulbs.
Mr Kwee said the grand opening for the centre will take place in the first quarter of next year.
