Construction of the garage will start immediately and is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2021.

Located west of North Boulevard, between the Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex and the Naimoli Family Softball Complex, the standalone, six-story garage will be constructed on the existing North Gilchrist Avenue.

Due to its proximity to North Delaware Avenue, which runs north toward the garage from Kennedy Boulevard, the garage will be officially named Delaware Avenue Garage. It will support students, faculty, staff and visitors of the nearby athletic facilities, the new Ferman Center for the Arts and the new Science Research Laboratories. Specific parking policies will be announced at a later date.

The garage will include significant landscaping and sidewalks for access. It will also include four electric vehicle recharging stations and secure covered storage for more than 150 bicycles.

Construction of the garage will start immediately and is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2021. Construction of the garage will be paid for through bond proceeds.

The Beck Group has been named to design and build the new structure.
