Project Aggieville Parking Garage
BBN Architects designed the façade, glazed stair towers, and commercial spaces of a new urban parking structure in the Aggieville District that is adjacent to the Kansas State University campus. The parking structure is a key catalyst project in a redevelopment effort for this district.
In addition to the roughly 400 public parking spaces the five-tier parking structure also provides 8,000 s.f. of leasable office/retail space on the ground floor. This commercial space adds crucial activity along the streetscape. Prior to construction the site was a municipal parking lot.
The façade treatment uses materials common to the historic neighborhood and carefully modulates the scale of the building. These design considerations were critical to better allow the very large structure to fit within the historic one- and two-story district.
BBN was a consultant to Olsson who led the project. Walker Consultants provided structural, parking, and vehicle circulation design.
