Luxury Club Motor Estates set to open in Broadview Heights

Club Motor Estates in Broadview Heights will be a display space for car enthusiasts to show off their collections, and relax in customized, luxury garages.

BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio — The first portion of a $25 million car storage campus, christened Club Motor Estates, is set to open this month.

Collectors can keep their antique and classic cars, hot rods and other prizes on the 16-acre campus off Edgerton Road, where they can also host parties.

“This is the first of kind in Ohio,” developer Jeff Badger said. “There is nothing like it. This yacht club for car collectors. Or a country club for car guys.”

The campus, when finished, will consist of eight buildings with 160 car storage units or “condos.”

The first building is almost complete, and another two are set to be finished by the winter. The remaining buildings will roll out over the next year and a half.

The club expects to have about 80 members once all buildings are complete.

The soundproof, insulated units will boast steel frames, cathedral ceilings, electricity, air conditioning and heating.

Buyers can customize these spaces with wet bars, entertainment centers, or add lofts overlooking their cars, according to the Club Motor Estate website.

The car condos will allow car enthusiasts a space to show off their entire collection in a festive space, rather than keep their cars in traditional garages in industrial lots. Badger plans to build his garage with an old London theme, complete with a tradition pub bar. Another car condo will feature a sleek modern design, with glass walls.

At Club Motor Estates, a large display space for cars, dubbed the Ballroom d’Elegance, and a clubhouse stocked with TVs, a conference room, and a patio with a grill space, are expected to open in the spring.

The ballroom could double as an event space for wedding receptions, and the clubhouse for work events.

The facility will open Aug. 22 with live music, rare cars, food trucks and a cash bar. The event runs 5 to 11 p.m.
