Where do you spend your free time or work on your hobby?
There is a concept in community planning and place making involving three separate but important social environments (or places) where people spend their time. The first two places are one’s home and one’s workplace. “Third places” generally include public or community places where people socialize or recreate, including places of worship, health clubs, bars and pubs, restaurants, stores, parks, community centers, etc. Now developers are creating new third places by combining the “man cave” and “she shed” concepts with mini-storage. These third places are known as luxury garage units or “car condos.”
The concept is simple. Rather than renting or leasing unconditioned dead storage space for vehicles, household items or recreational equipment in traditional mini-storage units, luxury garage units are made available for purchase as condominium units and are fully conditioned.
