More Boston Projects Choose Automated Parking Systems
With Boston on pace for record commercial real estate investment in 2020, largely driven by medium-density housing requirements, more Boston developers are installing high-density automated parking systems for their projects. As the use of stacked and automated parking increases in the United States, the benefits of these systems are becoming more widely known. These benefits include reduced parking footprints, construction costs, construction schedules and operating costs.

AJ Jenkins, National Sales Director at PARKPLUS, says “we are seeing a dramatic increase in demand for stacked and automated parking solutions in dense urban environments, with additional traction in smaller ancillary markets. Boston is a major US market and faces on and off-street parking challenges, further compounded by the evolving parking and transportation environment. PARKPLUS offers solutions for these challenges. As downtown areas densify, our industry and technology has evolved and adapted to help Architects and Developers design cost-effective projects using automated parking systems, while considerably minimizing the parking footprint. Boston has embraced our parking solution technology and we see our industry becoming very mainstream, as it is in other US high density urban metros”.
