Mountlake Terrace Transit Center Parking Structure

Project Size: 900 stalls

Architect: OTAK, Kirkland, Washington

Structural Engineer: Cary Kopczynski & Company, Bellevue, Washington

Contractor: Bershauer Phillips, Mountlake Terrace, Washington

Featuring five levels of open and efficient parking, the Community Transit parking structure at the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center adds conveniences for commuters.

The garage is constructed of cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete. A long span framing system provides column free parking. Ductile frames were used for seismic resistance in the east-west direction, eliminating shear walls and maximizing sight lines. Structural durability was enhanced through use of custom designed mixes which reduced slab shrinkage during construction and minimized porosity of the hardened concrete. And internal ramping system uses sloped parking bays provides an intuitive circulation loop through the garage. A structural steel sky bridge connects the garage to the freeway bus stop. Construction was completed on time and on budget. The project received a “Green Globes” designation for its sustainable features.
