Parking Garage with Pedestrian Bridge
This nine-level, open, long span, precast parking garage provides parking for the adjacent Bakery Square mixed-use campus. The garage was added along with a new nine-story, 300,000-sf office building.
The functional design of the garage consists of a double threaded helix with one-way drive aisles and angled parking stalls. An elevated pedestrian bridge connects the parking garage with the other adjacent Bakery Square garage with its connections to the hotel and office buildings on site. The glass backed elevators and glazed pedestrian bridge offer visibility to the street for passive security. The garage was designed to accommodate a future bus transit stop at the back of the garage along one of Pittsburgh’s public transit dedicated busways.
