Project Description
In order to meet parking demand for faculty/staff and event parking, the campus is considering the construction of a major parking deck on the site of the current shuttle parking lot west of the Assembly Hall. The deck would serve not only the faculty and staff but also event parking for the Assembly Hall and Memorial Stadium; both needs are unmet with existing facilities. It is anticipated that displaced shuttle parking will be accommodated in a new facility to be built further south. The consultant will determine deck size based upon pro-formas he develops; the facility must pay for itself. The consultant will also be asked to determine if retail demand exists sufficient to merit inclusion of retail space on the ground level along First Street. Deliverables include schematics of the deck, probable construction cost estimates, pro formas detailing parking demands and market feasibility and a schematic for a new remote shuttle surface lot.
