SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY FEB 11, 2019

The St. Armands Garage at 47 North Adams Drive will open to the public Tuesday, February 12, with nearly 500 public parking spaces launching a paid parking program at St. Armands Circle to boost parking availability and reduce street congestion.  Almost 200 on-street parking spaces in the St. Armands Parking District will be free.

 The four-level garage includes 484 parking spaces, five electric vehicle charging stations including one DC fast charger, bicycle storage and repair station and public restrooms. Twenty-three surface lot spaces adjacent to the garage also were created. With a continued commitment to sustainability, the garage features efficient lighting systems, a tire inflation station and solar panels that will be installed on the rooftop and will help power the garage.

The $15 million facility is the result of a mutual partnership between the City of Sarasota and St. Armands commercial property owners who will help pay for the facility through a special assessment.  The paid parking program also will fund the project and operations. The parking rate in the St. Armands garage is $.50 per hour Monday through Saturday, excluding holidays recognized by the City of Sarasota.
