City of Las Vegas - Symphony Park Garages
Las Vegas, NV
691 spaces for Lot B - 566 spaces for Lot L
2019 AIA Nevada Merit Award - Unbuilt Category
The project, located in Symphony Park, consists of two multi-level municipal parking garages with 691 parking spaces for Parcel B and 566 spaces for Parcel L, grade level retail shell-space (approx. 28,500 sf), and off-site and utility improvements. Symphony Park Parcels B and L are located in the area generally bounded by Symphony Park Avenue to the North, Union Pacific Railroad right of way to the East, West Clark Avenue to the South, and South Grand Central Parkway to the West.
Symphony Park is the first major open space within downtown Las Vegas and is quickly becoming Las Vegas’ urban central park, a beautifully landscaped area that encourages outdoor social interaction. Symphony Park is home to The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, DISCOVERY Children’s Museum and Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. These parking garages support the existing uses on the park, and the rapid growth and development of this area.
Both garages are planned with a very similar language and aesthetics, becoming recognizable elements with distinct colors on each that serve as wayfinding. The introduction of alternating galvanized steel profiles allows for the surrounding environment to be reflected, creating an ever-changing color composition. The addition of the Symphony Park musical note at the intersection of the main corners of each garage, further brands the buildings as belonging to this Park. The colors that are introduced on the galvanized steel screen are informed by the iconic Dream Sculpture that brands Symphony Park.
