Short Street Parking Garage Set to Open Tuesday
COLUMBIA - A $9.6 million parking structure will open in downtown Columbia Tuesday morning.
The Short Street Parking Garage is substantially complete and will open at 6:00 a.m. Construction for the project began in June 2012.
"Of course it was a little inconvenient at first," Gumby's manager Lacey Hubbert said. "Our employee parking is in the back and that was closed off for a short time."
The garage includes 420 parking spaces alloted for:
- 26 covered hourly spaces
- 9 accessible spaces
- 51 covered reserved spaces
- 47 uncovered permit spaces
- 287 covered permit spaces
Reserved and permit parking spaces are currently sold out with a wait list of more than 85 for each.
Last month, a $58,000 piece of steel artwork titled "Tidal Murmur" was installed outside the garage.
