Midtown Superblock Park and Garage
Historically a prominent Houston neighborhood, Midtown is experiencing a revitalization and tremendous growth. To address the parking challenges and help shape the area into a thriving, pedestrian-friendly urban environment, Midtown Redevelopment Authority has developed Midtown Park and Garage. This landmark project includes a 3-acre park with a 400-car parking garage directly underneath and other amenities such as an entertainment pavilion, water features, and restaurants.
One of the biggest challenges was how to have a living, sustainable park above a below-grade parking garage. Our structural and diagnostics engineers worked closely with our parking engineers to design an operationally efficient garage while allowing the park’s trees to grow and thrive.
Midtown Park is intended to create a central, unifying place where people can gather, yet make it easy to access on foot or by car, light rail, bus, or bike.

Tim Haahs The Philadelphia Zoo
America’s first zoo recently opened the Centennial District Intermodal Transportation Center. TimHaahs worked with Pennoni Associates, BLT Architects, Urban Engineers and Johnson Mirmiran & Thompson on the 683-space parking facility, serving Philadelphia Zoo visitors, as well as the adjacent Centennial District.
As one of Philadelphia’s largest cultural attractions, the Zoo has made an important commitment to the future of this important landmark, as well as an investment in the improvement and revitalization of the surrounding community. The $24 Million project will significantly benefit visitors, neighboring cultural attractions, and the Centennial and Parkside communities by making the areas near and around the Zoo safer for pedestrians and vehicles, while improving traffic flow and parking.
TimHaahs provided parking planning and design, as well as full architectural documentation and structural engineering for the stand-alone parking facility. The facility also includes a pedestrian ramp overlooking the upgraded plaza for a higher level of service for families that visit the zoo. This facility recognizes the Centennial District’s anticipated future growth, as it will prove to be an integral part of the district’s revitalization and development.
