Sometimes it seems that no one in Manhattan Beach uses their garage to actually park cars. Except maybe at the beach.
One new construction project by the beach runs with both ideas, and mixes it all up.
At 128 14th, a new, high-end modern downtown, they've built out what they call a 6-car "ultimate" garage.
In this radical reconceptualization of garage-ness, you don't just have vacant space to roll in your SUVs, convertibles and assorted beach toys.
No, you also get a home theater with surround sound, wet bar (with keg fridge) and a sunny patio.
Raw concrete won't do for flooring. Nope, it's highly polished.
Rollup garage doors at both ends will kick up a nice breeze, but what if that's not enough?
Of course, the garage is air conditioned.
