TAP ARCHITECTURE was selected and hired by the City of Oklahoma City to design a new 836 space parking garage in the heart of downtown OKC. The structure is a $20 Million project and is 7 stories high. TAP, who also previously designed the Oklahoma County Metro II Parking Garage located on the corner of Dean A. McGee and Hudson Avenues, was selected as the City continues to struggle with a parking system that is already over capacity.
Construction began in early 2013 and was completed one year later. Cathy O’Connor, president of The Alliance for the Economic Development of Oklahoma City, says that the garage should eliminate some of the parking issues in the Santa Fe Parking Garage, which continues to be overbooked due to the relocation of Continental Resources and Enogex.
“The thought is that there are users on the West side with the Santa Fe garage that we could move to the new garage,” O’Connor said. “The City needs the spaces, the library and art museum need the spaces. There is definitely enough demand, and the good news is we see demand at night as well.”
