Article Summary: 

The article discusses the importance of integrated design approach in planning and designing parking structures in urban spaces. The article examines three recently constructed urban parking garages and compares and contrasts each project to provide functional planning and design standards that can be used for the next iteration of parking garage design. The article emphasizes that the planning and design of parking structures require a focus on site location, traffic planning for vehicular ingress and egress, proper aesthetics, economic impact, and sustainability. The Bank of America Tower project is used as a case study in the article, highlighting the importance of location and the use of innovative design elements such as an express ramp system, state-of-the-art Parking Access and Revenue Control System (PARCS), and a state-of-the-art outdoor sky park. The Bank of America Tower is also the first project in the United States to achieve LEED v4 Platinum Core and Shell Certification, making it a model for sustainable urban structures.
