A new four-story, 277-space parking garage opens to the public Friday in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District.
The Corrigan Station garage, on the corner of 19th and Walnut streets, will be open for free for First Friday visitors.
After Friday, the garage will be for daytime use by tenants and visitors of Corrigan Station, the 10-story office building that is being redeveloped across Walnut. The garage will be available to the public for paid parking in the evenings.
“Parking is scarce in the Crossroads, which is why structured parking was vital to the success of this iconic historic renovation,” said Aaron Schlagel, a Copaken Brooks vice president who is overseeing the Corrigan Station project.
Occupancy in the office tower is planned by the end of the year. The architectural firm Hollis + Miller is taking the top three floors. Negotiations continue for other office tenants in addition to Chewology, an East Asian restaurant that has announced a ground-floor location.
The parking garage structure also includes ground-floor retail space. Tenants haven’t been announced yet for the garage space.
The garage will feature an exterior art project, to be installed in spring 2017, chosen through an Art in the Loop Foundation competition.
Corrigan Station is a project of Copaken Brooks and 3D Development.
