The Woodlands Waterway Square Parking Garage
The Woodlands is a rich and vibrant master planned community just north of Houston. Waterway Square encompasses many scenes, including culinary, music, dining and shopping. The parking studies Walter P Moore provided during the conceptual phase of the project reduced the required parking supply by over 500 spaces.
A pro-forma and a footprint analysis of the garage were used to determine the location, space count, number of levels and financial viability of the garage. We worked with the owner to design a garage that effectively serves and connects two Class A buildings, ground floor retail, a condominium, and hotel.
The garage serves the adjacent Waterway Square Park and offers overflow parking for the nearby 4,700 seat Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. To accommodate this event style peak traffic flow, the garage utilizes a dual ramping system that separates the garage into two separate circuits connected by crossover areas and provides two up and two down circuits to maximize vehicular ingress/egress.
