Will garages become extinct?


The technology to power driverless vehicles is already here, and greater tests of autonomous vehicles are already hitting the roadways. And as autonomous vehicles are spread around and the popularity of car-share programs rise, housing analysts are already calling on the death of the garage in residential homes.

Babcock Ranch, located north of Fort Myers, Fla., is a sustainable, tech-enabled master-planned community development that is already showing off driverless cars in pilot programs. Students living in the community can catch a ride to their elementary school on an autonomous shuttle.

Autonomous vehicles are “going to transform the way we think about the design of communities of the future,” says Syd Kitson, a developer with Babcock Ranch. “When you think about how we’re one day going to be able to eliminate parking garages, parking areas, and garages in homes, you need to think through how all of that works together.”
