East 2nd Street Parking

The East 2nd Street Parking facility is the first phase of a block-wide multiphase, mixed-use redevelopment project located across from the Des Moines City Hall in the East Village neighborhood. The six level, cast-in-place, post tension parking structure features 540 parking spaces and includes fully glazed east and west facades and glass backed elevators for visible secure circulation and protection from the elements.  A roof level structure over the top level of parking is designed and engineered to support a total of 672 solar panels for the completed development.  336 solar panels are currently installed, enabling the parking structure to achieve net zero energy. A brick pedestrian plaza was featured on the west of the facility to connect pedestrians to nearby amenities.  Plans for the second phase of the project include flanking the parking structure on the north and south sides with mixed-use buildings.
