Griffin Structures provided program and construction management services and bridging documentation for the new $9.2 million parking structure off Brea Boulevard, adding much-needed parking for the thriving Brea Downtown. The design-build parking structure is sited within a popular entertainment, dining, and shopping area known as the “Super Block.”
The new structure houses 476 parking stalls on four levels. A parking guidance system advises drivers on Brea Boulevard about the number of available parking stalls in all three of the City’s parking structures. Drivers can also access up-to-the-minute parking availability on a Brea Downtown parking app.
A meandering sidewalk lined with trees and vines soften the impact of the structure. Twenty covered bicycle spaces promote multi-modal transportation. The design allows for a future pedestrian bridge connecting the structure to the adjacent Improv Comedy Club. To help the City meet its sustainable goals, the structure was also designed to accommodate a future rooftop photovoltaic panel system.
