GREEN GARAGE RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Starting in mid-March 2021, Green Street Garage will be closing for an 8-month period due to construction.
Parking inside the Green Street Garage and surface lot in front of Cinemapolis WILL NOT be available during this time.
The existing Green Street Garage will undergo demolition this Spring to make way for much-needed improvements. When completed, the new garage will feature a total of 7 levels of parking, with an increase of 241 spaces.
This project comes in combination with the Asteri and the Ithacan development projects.
Together, these two projects will result in the construction of two 11- story buildings, with 181 permanently affordable living units above a community conference center and 200 market-rate apartments.
These projects will transform Green Street, with reimagined public spaces and much-needed infrastructure updates. Demolition of the existing garage is scheduled to begin in March 2021.
