Take new downtown parkades for a test drive

April 20, 2017

More than 500 parking stalls are now available for evening, weekend and special event public parking in the new Memorial Parkade.

“Construction work is still going on in the facility, with finishing work including the building façade, landscaping and interior construction of office spaces on Ellis Street,” said Dave Duncan, Parking Services Manager. “So we ask for people’s patience as multiple construction projects on the corners of Doyle and Ellis Street near completion.”

Intermittent lane closures will be in effect to allow for installation of the exterior cladding.  Motorists are asked to obey traffic control personnel when the entrance or exit lane is closed and single-lane alternating traffic is in effect to enter or leave the parkade.

The new Memorial Parkade parking stalls are in addition to the 197 additional stalls created in the recent expansion of the Library Parkade.

“In the course of expanding the Library Parkade, we were also able to enhance the existing structure with fresh paint, renewed the traffic deck coating and added a vehicle counting system” said Duncan. “This new technology will benefit downtown visitors and staff by letting them see, in real-time, how many stalls are available before they even drive inside.”

Leasing opportunities are available in the Library Plaza Parkade, centrally located with high-exposure store fronts and potential patio space. Contact HM Commercial for more information on the ground level retail units ranging from 1,450 to 4,285 square feet.
