City of Raleigh
This 365,000-sq.-ft. structure is built with pre-cast concrete and offers 1,050 parking spaces. A 30-foot-tall decorative frosted glass screen wall and inverted aluminum-clad pyramid add visual interest, and helped the parking deck win the City of Raleigh’s “Sir Walter Raleigh Award” for adding to the community appearance.
The Performing Arts Center parking deck is situated prominently in the southwest corner of Downtown Raleigh’s most photogenic angle. For this it was important to construct an aesthetically pleasing parking deck while providing over a thousand parking spaces to handle traffic from the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, Raleigh Convention Center and Red Hat Amphitheater.
