900 Parking Spaces
The Essex County Hall of Records Parking Garage is a 900-car parking deck located on West Market Street in Newark, NJ. The deck consists of six levels, with a glass façade facing the Essex County Veterans Courthouse and Essex County LeRoy F. Smith, Jr.Public Safety Building making the structure resemble an office building. The parking deck is designated for employee parking with two convenient entrances, which is the start of a larger plan to revamp the Essex County Government Complex. The design provides for economically optimum precast concrete structural bays, minimal circulation patterns for both pedestrian and vehicle movement as well as high design, visibly and building transparency for additional safety and security concerns. Careful planning was required to erect this precast garage from outside of the garage footprint on a tight urban site.
