Project Description: The Parking Structure #6 located in downtown Santa Monica serves several major local and tourist destinations. The structure consists of three subterranean and eight above-ground parking levels, with space for up to 90 bicycles in racks and 19 motorcycles, and approximately 7,000 square feet of ground-level retail space fronting on 2nd Street. The overall design of this structure is unique in that the pedestrian experience does not stop at the ground floor, but continues up along the entire building face, via the dramatic west-facing element. The structure incorporates sustainable components such as photovoltaic solar roof panels and 30 electrical vehicle charging stations. Patrons cascade up and down an exterior diagonal stair which weaves in and out of the plane of the façade. This increases public safety by its high visibility and offers patrons unique ocean views. The public parking structure construction was completed in December 2013. Morley Construction Company was hired to be the design-builder for the demolished rebuild of Parking Structure 6. The design-build team includes International Parking Design, Inc. (IPD) as the parking designers and Behnisch Architect as the design architect.
