Parking on the Medical Campus and Central Campus is in short supply with respect to demand during peak times, resulting in patients, faculty, and staff not being able to park. Although several thousand employees park in remote locations, walk, or utilize alternative transportation each day, additional parking is critical for patient satisfaction, efficient operations, and retention of faculty and staff. As part of the university’s 2005 Medical Center Campus and East Medical Campus Master Plan Update, the Wall Street District was recognized as an opportunity for development and a key component to future parking planning because of its close proximity to the Medical Center Campus core.
To provide additional parking capacity in this area, the construction of a 7-level, 1,050-space parking structure on Wall Street to be built over an existing 130-space surface parking lot, is proposed. This will allow a net gain of 920 parking spaces. This proposed structure is intended to reflect the architecturally-detailed façade of the Wall Street East Parking Structure which was completed in the summer of 2014.
