TEMPE MIXED-USE PARKING STRUCTURE
This mixed-use public parking garage is located directly adjacent to a planned hotel and park next to Tempe City Hall. The 165,000 sf, 442-space structure features imported stone cladding to match the hotel facade, and perforated metal screens at openings to hide parked cars and contain the glare of headlights. A two-story 12,000 sf retail and office wing conceals the parking along the street frontage. The $16M garage was designed with sustainability strategies consistent with LEED guidelines. Included are green roofing, landscaping at the lower roof areas, and canopies at roof-level parking to shade parking and support photovoltaic panels. CPTED principles were introduced for the safety of patrons as well as for the protection of the nearby police station.
