The WeHo Municipal Automated Parking Garage in West Hollywood, CA, serves City Hall and the renovated Community Plaza.
The automated garage has seen a decreased CO2 emissions as cars no longer have to circle the lot looking for a parking space. This is the equivalent of taking 92 cars off the road. The facility is also solar-powered.
Without the need for ramps and less space needed per parking space, the garage takes up 7,000 less square feet than a non-automated garage of its capacity. The city turned this space into the West Hollywood’s Community Plaza, a “tranquil park-like space” complete with trees, benches, a water feature, and stage.
The city also hired local artists to paint murals on the walls to reflect the aesthetics of the community.
