About the project

The development boasts a four-bay central double helix configuration with wide bays on both sides. This architectural choice effectively reduces the number of rotations required to reach the top of the garage by half, increasing overall efficiency and serviceability of the structure.

The first level has floor-to-ceiling heights of 23 feet and 4 inches, adding to the versatility of the structure’s leasable retail area. The second floor was designed with a height of 11 feet and 2 inches to comply with ADA van accessibility requirements, and all other levels maintain a 10-foot ceiling height to strike a balance between user comfort and cost-effectiveness.

The structure employed is a cast-in-place system, strategically selected to maximize vertical clearance and create an open and user-friendly parking environment to improve wayfinding within. The garage was designed to incorporate the look of the future hotel and residential tower into the project without having to make changes, as such the skin changes to make it appear as one continuous tower above the podium parking garage. The garage not only to caters to the parking needs of Trammell Crow Center but also provides a parking solution for the diverse clientele of the upcoming 200-key upscale lifestyle boutique hotel and the anticipated 400-unit high-rise residential tower.
