Union City wished to develop an Intermodal Station District to better utilize the former PG&E site. The project would allow the City to transform the industrial acreage adjacent to the existing Union City BART station into a high density downtown neighborhood. The Station District plan included a mixture of housing, commercial, retail, restaurant and community uses.
During the preliminary stages of planning a parking structure as part of its broader Station District Master Plan, the City hired Watry Design to perform a critical review of the conceptual plan. This review included the development of concept alternatives, opinions of cost, evaluation of alternative funding approaches, evaluation of operation and maintenance costs and revenue forecasts. The review was the first step in forming a comprehensive Station District parking plan. In addition, the Parking Study covered many different aspects of parking, including parking demand, parking supply and financing and operations of public parking.
