Arizona’s tallest parking structure accommodates more than 2000 vehicles in downtown Phoenix. The new 11-story, $33.5-million precast concrete parking structure was completed amid the revitalization of Park Central as a mixed-use destination.
The construction of the parking structure was inherently complex due to the project height, the tight site and the capacity of the cranes used to assemble the structure. The structure was sized to maximize the available space for students at the new Creighton University Health Sciences Campus, retail customers of Park Central Mall, and tenants in the new apartment complex attached to the parking structure. The height of the parking structure fits into the urban fabric and offers stellar views of the capital city and beyond.

To meet the needs of the expanding Creighton University campus, “no other system (besides precast concrete) could go up that quickly and deal with the site logistics as a single-source supplier. Prefabrication off-site was critical to meeting the schedule because milestones were tied to the start of the apartment complex.
