Share Building, Share Cars

The Newcastle developer of the new inner city Arvia Apartments, has devised the perfect solution for the building’s shortage of car parking spaces and also for inner city living in general.

The Newcastle Herald writes “Arvia Apartments is thought to be the first residential block in Newcastle to have a cars share scheme when it opens in 2011.”

The body corporate will look after the maintenance, booking and hire of the cars so it’s a practical solution for inner city residents who don’t require a car most of the time and also cheaper than owning and maintaining one.

Car sharing is by no means a new concept but the convenience of only sharing with fellow residents seems like an attractive deal to me.  My only concern would be driving around town with the tacky artwork on the car!
