Mason Street Parking Deck
James Madison University,
THE MASON STREET PARKING DECK is a new freestanding, five level parking structure at the north edge of James Madison University’s (JMU) campus and adjacent to the JMU Real Estate Foundation property planned to accommodate a new hotel project. The new five story (ground level plus four elevated levels), 1,000 car garage is 307,000 GSF and will be located at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Mason Street, marking the northern gateway to campus.
The main pedestrian entrance to this building will be at the southeast corner portion of the Mason Street elevation. A pedestrian exit is located at the northwest corner on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. On the north side is one vehicular entrance drive to the parking garage; other vehicular entries are located on Mason Street. The style of the Parking Deck is collegiate Georgian. The architecture is intended to reference the character and detailing of nearby historic campus buildings.
The project is a design-build endeavor with Glavé & Holmes Architecture, Donley’s, Walker Parking Consultants, and VHB.
