506-Space Municipal Parking Garage For an Urban Mixed-Use Development
This redevelopment project consists of a new eight-level, open, precast parking garage and two 14-story residential towers on the former site of a municipal parking lot. Owned by the City of West New York, the garage provides parking for the public as well as the residents of the new towers. The private developer for the residential towers managed the construction of the garage for the City.
The functional design of the garage consists of a single helix ramping system with 90-degree parking stalls and two-way drive aisles. The ground floor of the garage has additional height to allow for moving trucks and emergency vehicles to access the buildings as well as be able to drive through the site.
The exterior garage elevations include pigmented architectural precast panels with a sandblast finish. In addition, there are additive architectural elements on the more visible parts of the garage facades. The two residential towers will shield most of the parking garage’s mass from being visible from the surrounding streets.
