Oregon Convention Center Parking Garage and Mixed-Use Building
This seven-level, 175,000 SF parking garage includes 14,000 SF of first level mixed-use retail and office space. The garage is the first Parksmart certified garage in Oregon. Parksmart (formerly known as Green Garage) is the only green building rating system for garages and is administered by the Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). GBCI is the same organization that oversees LEED building certifications. The 447 spaces in the parking garage are shared between Metro users, visitors of the retail spaces on the lower levels, and guests of the Hyatt Regency hotel. The structure consists of post-tensioned concrete slabs, reinforced concrete columns and shear walls, and an augercast pile foundation system.
