Riverplace Tower Parking Garage
Location: Jacksonville, FL
This project involved the planning of a new entrance to an existing hotel, a future high rise mixed-use development and a new 425-car parking garage. The new buildings will flank a new entrance drive to the hotel. The garage is designed as a mixed-use structure with retail space tucked under the ramp facing the primary street. Designed to complement the existing office building and hotel, the garage uses a conventional precast concrete structure; however, the facades will blend concrete, metal panels and stainless steel mesh. The intention is to give the facades a sense of presence and solidity at night when illuminated, and translucency during the day. Glazed stair towers provide direct access to the hotel and the existing office tower.
