From architecture and public art to state of the art technology, parking can enhance the passenger experience. Airports are putting increased emphasis on parking that goes beyond the functional and enriches the journey. 

Watry Design has delivered several successful projects at the forefront of this growing trend, including the LAX Economy Parking Structure and the San Diego International Airport Terminal 2 Parking Plaza, which received national recognition from the Design Build Institute of America, International Parking and Mobility Institute, National Parking Association and other organizations.

In addition, we are currently we are working with the San Diego Regional Airport Authority to deliver the San Diego International Airport Terminal 1 Parking Plaza and the Allegheny County Airport Authority to provide parking that supports the a new terminal at the Pittsburgh International Airport

Will you be attending this year's AAAE Planning, Design and Construction Symposium? We'd love to connect with you March 1-3 in Anaheim and share more about how parking can provide a premier passenger experience, as well as discuss other trends and challenges in the aviation industry!
