Imagine a utopia for car enthusiasts; a home where you slept in a loft atop your climate-controlled garage. Better yet, it’s right down the road from a test-track. Sounds awesome, right? It’s called the M1 Concourse, and it opens this upcoming June with the grand opening planned on August 14.
Incase you hadn’t heard about this wonderful auto-haven, the M1 Concourse is an 87-acre lot with 264 private garages (or “car condos”) available for sale. Well, actually, there are only 139 car condos available, as 135 units have already sold – and the construction of them is far from finished. Eventually a total of 338 of these structures will be built.
These car homes are not solely what makes the planned M1 Concourse exciting. There will be a test track located about a mile from these garages, along with an exhibition area and a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse. The track will be ready for action with guard rails and tire walls along with on-site medics.
Brad Oleshansky, CEO of M1 Concourse, asked reporters, “What better use of turning an old auto factory into an auto enthusiasts’ destination right on Woodward?” Oleshanksy said that visitors can expect to see “car shows, events, swap meets, auctions, trade shows, drive in movies, food truck rallies and all kinds of things.”
