The 1,000-car facility is designed to support the university’s new student residence hall and provide additional commuter parking.

The parking structure, designed as a three-bay concrete structure, is expected to be completed by fall 2010. The university’s police and parking management offices will be housed in the facility.

Austin-based ParkingPlanners and Houston-based Kirksey Architects were recently awarded a student residence hall and parking garage project at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches. ParkingPlanners is the functional designer on the parking garage.
