EDMOND, Oklahoma -

A new car development set for Edmond is revving the engines of local car collectors.

It’s called “My Garage” and will be located near Thomas Rd. and Covell Rd. in North Edmond.

The plans call for luxury living for your car, boat or other “toys” you don’t have room for at home. Owners will not be allowed to live in their units, but can customize their space with a kitchen, bathroom and entertainment area.

The car condo concept has been a hit in other cities, according to the developer of “My Garage”.

“In every market that we’ve looked at, they are sold out. There’s waiting lists,” said Developer Mark Baumann, who also said these developments have turned into “man cave” communities.

Baumann’s plan calls for 90 to 100 climate controlled units in the first two phases of the project. An “owners only” clubhouse will also be featured.

The 900-1200 sq./ft. units can also be combined depending on space needed.

Baumann went on a recent trip to Minnesota to check out a similar project. He said it had become a place people go every weekend to work on their cars or just hang out.   

“My big take away was the feeling of community,” said Baumann.

Prices will start at $95 per sq./ft. and feature tight security with key card entry.

“[There are] a lot of people that have these cars that don’t have a place to take them,” said local classic car collector Don Nevard.

“I think there are a lot of wives that would like to have their husbands go to a place like that,” added Nevard.

Baumann is working with Edmond City Planning and hopes to begin construction in the spring.
