The parking facility is designed by WTW Architects and is a 998-space, six-story parking facility with two way level floor plates, 90 degree parking stalls, and cascading ramps. It was constructed with steel, glass, pre-cast concrete, extruded aluminum, green screens, and other materials. The parking facility is located in the northern part of Lot 1 east of Heinz Field, and is designed to operate with the existing surface parking lot or independently. With the new parking facility, there will be approximately 607 net new spaces in the lot. Users can enter and exit the parking facility from West General Robinson Street from the south or from Reedsdale Street from the north.
The parking facility has been awarded Parksmart
Gold certification, the first Parksmart
project to receive the Gold level certification from the Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). Included in the sustainable features is a storm-water management system that increases pervious areas and provides bio swales. The building also features some of the most energy efficient garage lighting available, with lighting that adjusts to sunlight and occupancy. Free electrical charging stations are available to charge electric and electric-hybrid vehicles. The parking facility is designed to be a multi-modal facility and includes protected bicycle parking for a minimum of 100 bike spaces. Dedicated pedestrian and bike pathways are provided to/ from the parking facility. It is situated near the North Side Light Rail Train Station to the east and Allegheny Light Rail Train Station to the west, as well as being nearby to bike share stations and the Heritage Trail system in the North Shore.
