This site, which is currently used as a College facilities yard, should also be considered as a potential location for a future below-grade parking structure to be developed in conjunction with a College building but providing structured parking for both the College and additional public parking spaces. This site (along with the Grand Union/HSD site) is one of three locations identified as appropriate to capture Downtown-parking demand before traffic filters into the core area.
