    CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG PARKING DECK

    The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Parking Deck creates seven new levels of much needed structured parking to support the adjacent government complex in downtown Charlotte. Designed to be efficient in both its structure and use of materials, the parking desk is a simple rectangular mass. The northwest corner of the mass has been extracted from the overall form along the street edge creating an active urban plaza and retail opportunities on the plaza level to enhance the pedestrian experience in this area of downtown. 

    The materials on the project are simple and durable. The precast concrete structure is clad in a perforated metal mesh at the pedestrian level, while the upper levels are clad in aluminum horizontal fins. The horizontal and vertical patterning of the materials and support structure reflects the overall grain of the adjacent courthouse and detention center, creating a clear, yet distinct relationship with the neighboring buildings. 

    Designed as a phased project, the first phase created approximately 454,000 square feet and space for 993 vehicles, while a future Phase II will add an additional 840 spaces and 324,300 square feet of space.
