Old Parking Deck/Rack/Elevator

I love how wonderfully dangerous this old parking structure looks and would like to see this principal of this elevated storage system reapplied as a vending units for large objects. Just picture all of the big box stores that could be replaced with giant 12 story vending machines throwing out washer/dryers and flat screen TVs.

    They have something similar in Munich, Germany now.. and they use it all the time. The design requires only 20% of the space a traditional parking structure uses, and it eliminates door dings and other damage.
