Article Summary: 

The West Deck parking garage at Penn State University (PSU) is a modern, six-level, 540,000-square-foot garage that includes 1,653 parking spaces. The garage incorporates several elements to encourage multimodal transportation, such as a dedicated bike parking zone, a bike repair shop, and a cantilevered cover for a new campus bus stop. The garage also includes 28 ADA-accessible parking spaces, 5 EV charging plugs, and a parking guidance system. The garage is a double-helix design, partially underground to maximize site conditions and increase the number of parking spaces. The façade of the structure is red brick with tan/white aluminum fins to match other structures on the campus. The garage’s roof canopy was designed for the installation of solar panels in the future.
