On June 28, the International Parking Institute honored the Central Riverfront Garage with its Award of Excellence for having the best design of a parking facility with more than 800 spaces.
The two-level garage was recognized for serving local parking needs while supporting economic development through its support of The Banks mixed-use project and Smale Riverfront Park.
"I am extremely proud of what our team has been able to accomplish," project manager John Deatrick said in a prepared release. "This project was designed for durability, longevity, low maintenance, high peak capacity, user-friendliness and future expansion – we accomplished all that and more."
The project team includes THP Limited Inc., Messer Construction, Heapy Engineering, GBBN Architects, and DNK Architects.
The Cincinnati Park Board has been selected to receive the National Facility/Park Design Award by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) for Smale Riverfront Park.
The award recognizes the park's unique and innovative design and the inclusiveness of its design process.
The Cincinnati Park Board will officially accept the award at the NRPA's National Congress & Exposition in Houston on October 9.
The Cincinnati Central Riverfront Urban Design Master Plan, which included planning for both The Banks and Smale Riverfront Park, was awarded the American Planning Association's National Planning Excellence Award for Implementation in January.
