Sharpless Street Parking Garage, West Chester University,
West Chester, PA

Convenient Student Parking

This precast parking garage provides student parking at West Chester University. The five-level parking garage with 385 spaces is recessed into the sloping site. The functional design of the garage consists of a three-bay, side by side single helix arrangement. The elevations are comprised of columns, spandrels and wall panels. The architectural precast consists of two types of panels; sandblasted and thin brick inlay. The garage elevations have a clearly articulated base, middle and corniced top. This garage was designed and constructed concurrently with the Matlack Parking Garage on the West Chester University campus.

The Harman Group, now IMEG provided structural engineering, parking consulting, and full architectural documentation for the parking garage.
