STATION AND NEIGHBORHOOD CONNECTION
The Northgate Parking Garage is primarily below grade, providing program space to the Northgate commercial center on the roof level. The garage connects to the Northgate light rail station north entrance via a tree-lines plaza, providing a pleasant atmosphere and convenient access for station users. A pedestrian bridge links this plaza to the commercial center, promoting quick access to and from the station. The garage has two points of vehicular access from separate streets, accessed on different levels to facilitate traffic flow within the garage and reduce traffic congestion in the neighborhood.
Finish materials are selected that enable the garage architecture to blend well with the adjacent station structure. The south facade, which is partially above grade, includes a vegetated green wall and gabion wall to fully screen the cars from view while giving vitality to the space.
