Best Architectural Precast Concrete Parking Structure over 1500 spaces
The Katy Station Parking Garage, or the Katy METRO Park & Ride is a 600,000-square-foot parking structure located on the corner of I-10W and The Grand Parkway (S.H. 99).
The six-story, precast structure contains 1,650 parking spots and two elevators for METRO Park and Ride. The structure features a 60-foot extruded canopy system that allows the commuter buses to come under covered parking while loading passengers. Construction began March 2016 and was completed under an accelerated schedule in order for Katy METRO to begin servicing a rapidly growing population and alleviate insufficient parking experienced at the Park and Ride.
