The Ultimate Garage

If you’re a car guy, you’ve dreamed of the ultimate garage. Someplace where you can work on and display your cars. Well what if someone made a whole bunch of these ultimate garages and put them in one ultimate garage complex?

In this case, its called Iron Gate Motor Condos and they are the “first exclusive residence for your classic, collector or exotic vehicle. Golfers have their place at the club; pilots have their place at the hangar…now motoring enthusiasts have their place at the Iron Gate Motor Condos.”

If your passion has outgrown your garage then Iron Gate might be your Ultimate Garage. Oh you have to live in Chicago. Or really a suburb kind of west of Chicago for it to make sense. Its out by Naperville for those that know the area.

The features include:

  • Gated campus with automated security and key code access 24/7
  • Scenic views of a 22 acre nature preserve with bike path access
  • Your choice of unit location and size ready for your personal design choices
  • Spacious, safe, temperature controlled storage for your prized possessions
  • Timeless design; quality construction
  • Convenient car-related retail plaza on site for “one-stop” shopping
  • “Storage with benefits” – with all the amenities, camaraderie, and events it is simply a fun place to be

They say the expansive campus will be used for car meets which sounds cool. But for me its the “Convenient car-related retail plaza on site for “one-stop” shopping” that sounds awesome. If they put a parts store, alignment shop, body shop, and other car related services into the other side of the complex this would be worth moving to the west suburbs for. Life would be so easy.

Apparently the first building is completely sold out, and approximately 50% of the next phase is sold out as well. So if you live in Chicago and need an ultimate garage give them a call at 630-945-1085 or email becky@irongatemotorcondos.com

While they are under construction, they set up a showroom at 2228 Ferry Rd., Suite #101 in Naperville, where they have plans, pricing, photos and ideas for your new home away from home.
