The parking structure is a 642-car five-story parking garage and is designed by Graves Architects, Inc. The parking garage can be entered and exited from Centre Avenue on the north end of the garage at the fourth level, or by two entrances from Colwell Street on the south end of the garage. The garage connects to the arena for the use of suite and club seat holders during events. The garage is also used for commuter parking during the work day. The fifth level of the garage serves the Cambria Suites Hotel.

This parking structure was built by the SEA. The construction was funded by a 30-year revenue bond, which is backed, in part, by annual payments from the Penguins. Any construction cost overruns were the responsibility of the SEA. Horizon Properties was responsible for the cost of the fifth deck.
