Florida Marlins’ Ballpark Parking Garages Win Design Award
The Florida Parking Association (FPA) recently named the Florida Marlins Ballpark Parking Garages the winner of their annual design competition in the New Design category. The FPA is a professional organization that commits itself to enhancing the image of parking by promoting and representing the parking industry in the State of Florida.
For the Marlins’ new state-of-the-art MLB stadium, Timothy Haahs and Associates, Inc. (TimHaahs), in conjunction with architect, Leo A. Daly, designed four parking structures to provide spectators and the surrounding community with convenient parking options. For the stadium, rich in history and culture, the TimHaahs team, which included contractor, Suffolk Construction, designed and constructed the parking facilities to incorporate a variety of uses, such as retail space and provisions for possible future housing or academic uses.
With user convenience in mind, TimHaahs designed the garages to empty within 40 minutes, as well as strategically placed the facilities at the four corners of the playing field. In terms of architectural design, the TimHaahs team remained consistent with Miami’s vivacious, energetic environment and reflected that ambiance in the facilities through bright colors, complementary lighting accents, and façade enhancements.
