This new parking structure, which opened in January, has 1,295 parking spaces and two separate entry and exit locations. Clearance is 8’2″ on the 1st level and 7′ on levels 2 through 7. It serves the COPT Canton Crossing Tower as a Private Parking Facility with AVI access control entry only. The double precast façade provides significant architectural relief and the cantilevered glass-enclosed stair tower maximizes sidewalk space at grade while providing generous views of the Baltimore Harbor. Deep foundations consist of pile caps and grade beams on steel M piles.
This project was awarded Baltimore City’s Green Building Standard’s Two Green Star Rating (equivalent to LEED Silver). The parking structure is equipped with electric car charging stations, low fuel emission parking spaces and handicapped parking on all levels. Storm water is managed under the ramp of the structure through two large baffled settling pools.
