P+A upgraded the design of an outdated parking garage to coincide with the opening of PNC Park — the garage sits in the stadium's outfield view corridor. The project embraces the original 1950s and 1960s facades and enhances their style by adding special lighting and coloration. The reinvented structure demonstrates that an old garage can be reborn as a hip neighbor to Pittsburgh's stadiums, riverfronts and Cultural District.
