Space-saving is what automated parking systems boast about. Stakeholders want to see how the system positively contributes to project ROI. 

This case study is about how U-tron condensed 10 parking levels into only 4, while creating 373 parking spaces compared to 300 in the conventional design.

Most importantly, the U-tron system enabled an additional 32 residential units into the building, which significantly increased the project’s ROI.

Park + Graden: A luxurious eco-friendly development in Hoboken, NJ

Park + Garden is a luxurious eco-friendly mixed-use development in Hoboken, NJ, offering stunning rentals with premier amenities, including an on-site pet grooming salon, indoor basketball court, and outdoor pool.

It also contains an automated parking system designed, installed, and serviced by U-tron with 373 parking spaces.  The development also accommodates two levels of Charter school and some boutique retail shops on ground level.

However, the initial design was somewhat different

The developers planned two towers with 180 rental units as well as a ten-story conventional parking garage to accommodate 300 spaces. The building is overlooking the Manhattan skyline, so there was a height limit. Developers could not build more than twelve stories in this area.

The initial plan with a conventional parking structure succeeded to meet the zoning requirements of both height and parking. Nevertheless, when the developers turn to U-tron with the request to design an automated parking system, the picture was significantly changed.

The U-tron project improvements

U-tron’s design succeeded to reduce the parking structure from 10 to only 4 levels. The new design took the parking out of the below grade and completely omitted the need to excavate. The parking capacity increased from 300 to 373 spaces. The freed-up spaces allowed the developer to create a beautiful park and common area with Barbecue grillers and outdoor pool on top of the parking roof.

Most importantly – the new U-tron automated parking design allowed additional 32 residential units into the building which significantly increased the project’s ROI.
