The underground automated parking system includes tandem, 2-deep parking spaces for maximum parking efficiency.


Factors driving the parking system design included recent regulations limiting new above grade parking structures in Boston, and efforts to limit street parking in certain areas. The system also returned revenue generating square footage back to the developer by reducing the square feet per vehicle from 450 sf to 170 sf.
