Sustainable Parking at Santa Monica

Sustainable Parking Structure Will Have Santa Monica Motorists Seeing Green

By Jorge Casuso

March 28 -- Hoping to make history, Monica City officials unveiled what is likely the nation’s first sustainable solar-powered parking structure Tuesday.

The six-story, 882-space structure at the Civic Center features photovoltaic roof panels, a storm drain water treatment system, recycled construction materials and energy efficient mechanical systems.

The $29 million structure -- which sits near the entrance and

exit ramps at the end of the 10 Freeway -- also features ground-floor retail, art works on every floor and sweeping city and ocean views.

“From the Santa Monica Mountains to Catalina Island, these parking spaces have the best view in town,” Council memebr Kevin McKeown told the crowd gathered on the top floor, as a cold wind swept in from the white-capped ocean a few blocks away.
