Located at the corner of Chadstone Road and Dandenong Highway, the two-level car park adds 850 new parking spaces to the centre, enhancing ease of access to The Fashion Capital.
Designed by Cera Stribley, the architectural façade of the car park features 11 kilometres of bronzed anodised aluminium fins, blending seamlessly with the surrounding buildings.
400 of the parking bays are shaded by a 1.6 Mega Watt solar system installed upon the car park roof, designed to reduce the centre’s energy consumption.
34,000 square-metres of the newly built structure were added to the existing carpark and incorporated wide ramps, additional staircases and dual lifts, all designed to enhance accessibility and improve traffic flow. An upgraded parking guidance system that utilises smart-sensor technology to direct customers to the most convenient park was also an added feature to the project.
