The demand for robotic valet parking systems in the United States continues to increase as developers and users enjoy the many benefits of automated parking. Several new developments in Manhattan are equipped with robotic parking systems by PARKPLUS. One of these projects, Jardim, sits just a few steps from the High Line in West Chelsea.
Jardim is an 11-story luxury condominium building, developed by Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group, and designed by architect Isay Weinfeld. Thirty-six residences are distributed across two towers which surround a lush multi-level garden on a shared base, a rare amenity in New York City.
Efficient Building Circulation
The building is equipped with a 38-space PARKPLUS AGV Automated Parking System on a subterranean level. Drivers approach the automated parking system through a street level tunnel that runs along the east side of the property, providing access from both 27th and 28th streets. The driveway also leads directly to the lobby for sheltered pick-ups and drop-offs. The PARKPLUS system required a single point of access, providing efficient circulation for the building.
The PARKPLUS AGV Automated Guided Vehicle provides maximum parking efficiency with a flexible floorplan configuration. The robotic AGV is manufactured in the USA at the company’s corporate headquarters in Fairview, New Jersey.
Electric Vehicle Demand
Initially installed with four Electric Vehicle charging stations, the automated parking garage can be expanded to include new charging stations to meet the growing demand. An emerging trend towards electric vehicle (EV) adoption is prevalent in automated parking systems. All PARKPLUS AGV systems in New York City include dedicated EV-charging parking spaces and the numbers are increasing. EV Charging in parking garages is rapidly becoming the new standard across the nation as code adoptions are beginning to mandate new and evolving EV provision requirements. PARKPLUS is assisting developers across the country meet these and other electric vehicle requirements.
