The city’s plans to build a new, five-story are moving along.
The new computerized parking structure, which the City Council appproved unanimously at its , will offer a valet-like experience to automatically store vehicles in parking berths using motorized lifts, conveyers and shuttles. Construction is expected to begin in late summer 2012 and take about one year to complete.
The final cost of the project, according to Oscar Delgado, the city’s director of public works, is projected to be $13.3 million. That includes $2.6 million for the purchase of the technology from Unitronics, as well as construction of the building and creation of a 27-foot-wide courtyard area between the City Hall building and the parking structure.
