With the need for parking still great around Borough Hall, the city plans to turn the former parking garage behind the hall into a flat parking area.
The crumbling garage was demolished this past July. Sharon Lee, a spokesperson for Borough President Melinda Katz, stated there will be an, “at grade (flat, not elevated) street level municipal parking lot.”
“They are working on the parking lot design now,” said Lee, adding that there will be a January 2016 procurement, bid and anticipated construction completion is first quarter of 2017.”
The project was initially slated to finished this fall, but has been extended for one year.
