Could Uber “skyports” for LA air taxis be real estate’s next big thing?
Uber intends to start its flying taxi service in Los Angeles, complete with “skyport” stations that would include a retail component. Could those skyports be the next big thing in real estate?
New details about the ride-hailing company’s Uber Air service show prototype concepts for the sleek landing stations, according to Curbed.
Uber wants to build those skyports in cities around the country, starting with L.A. and Dallas in 2023, according to the report.
The modular CitySpace skyports are designed to be quick to build from the ground up or converted from an existing parking garage to “minimize the effect ton the local community and environment.”
