Climbing wall dresses up parking structure


Climbing wall dresses up parking structure

It’s safe to say I have no idea where Utrecht is, but I like what I’ve read about a parking garage recently completed for the University of Utrecht. It has 2,000 parking spots, and a bike shelter, and a public transit connection, and a climbing wall.

It’s true, a climbing wall. Parkers can scale the man-made cliff to the top floor and pick up their car when it’s time to go home at night. Read the article and see the photos here.

What a terrific way to make a parking garage multi-faceted. An amenity like a climbing wall will draw customers who might not have come otherwise. And it gives a potentially ugly building some architectural interest.

Life’s too short to be one dimensional, even in parking.
