August_b: MV Parking Garage

Posted October 3rd, 2011 by HKP Architects

Studio K Project: Mount Vernon Parking Garage HKP Architects continues to study plans and massing studies for a multi-level parking garage between 2nd and 3rd streets, as desired by the City of Mount Vernon. Historical preservation of the existing GTE building is a concern of many residents and local business groups, so careful attention to how the existing building can be incorporated into the design is being considered. HKP is also studying how to incorporate more contemporary design elements, to make a transition between the historical Main Street and the industrialized I-5 corridor to avoid thematic applications.

Conceptual designs incorporating retail edge on Gates and 2nd Avenue, contemporary approach in "transition" zone.
