A new garage for the Easton Urban District.

Approach

With the expansion of Easton and the ever-growing need for more parking, this project was a needed addition to the existing parking garages in the area. In the new Urban District of Easton Town Center, this garage serves as the primary parking location for retail, restaurants, and entertainment.

This garage is a new six-level parking garage structure with 922 parking spaces, including EV charging stations on each level and digital wayfinding, that serve the new Urban District. It is centrally located between the new M/I Homes Office and the new Aloft Hotel. The North End of the garage includes a 4,618sf retail space along Worth Ave.

The design and use of materials break up the larger facade of the garage, to shift the sense of scale, using a combination of precast, brick, metal panels, and terracotta screening. The stair towers were designed to feel very open and filled with natural light to provide a sense of safety.

This project is a collaboration between M+A Architects and Walker Consultants.
