PHILADELPHIA – The Pennsylvania Parking Association (PPA) recently recognized the new Philadelphia Zoo Centennial District Transportation Center with an Award of Excellence at its annual awards ceremony. PPA’s 2013 Award of Excellence Competition recognized projects that exemplify excellence in parking design, equipment, operations, and construction among the parking industry, as well as the general public.
TimHaahs provided full design services for the 683-space parking facility, serving Zoo visitors, as well as the adjacent blooming Centennial District. The facility also includes a pedestrian ramp overlooking the upgraded plaza for a higher level of service for families that visit the Zoo. Cognizant of the Centennial District’s anticipated future growth, the structure will prove to be an integral part of the District’s revitalization and development.
TimHaahs provided parking planning and design, as well as full architectural documentation and structural engineering for the stand-alone parking facility. TimHaahs also worked with Pennoni Associates and the Remington Group on the project.
