Dallas, Texas/500,000 square feet/800 spaces
Block E Garage is part of the 33-acre Park Lane mixed-use development occupying the southeast corner of Highway 75-Central Expressway and Park Lane. The 500,000 square foot garage provides parking for retail, restaurant and office space visitors as well as Art Institute of Dallas students. BOKA Powell designed this six-level, 800-space structural concrete garage with an additional ground floor of retail spaces and a two-story premier health club on top, for a total of nine stories. BOKA Powell worked with the General Contractor to ensure that the project’s schedule integrated into the overall phasing for the entire mixed-use development. It was essential that the project’s progress did not interrupt the daily operations of The Art Institute (to which it is now linked by skybridge), two existing, occupied office buildings, and an active DART station, all located adjacent to the site.
