The Park at South Market District

Woodward Design+Build served as the general contractor on South Market District Parcel D, building a new parking garage to add to the new mixed-use neighborhood downtown. Using a pre-cast concrete structure with architectural pre-cast exterior cladding, Woodward constructed a 6-story building comprised of 5 levels of parking and ground floor retail. The first floor of the building features aluminum storefront entrances and steel plate wall panels. IPE wood, installed by Woodward Steel Group, adds an interesting architectural feature to the corner of O’Keefe and Girod. As part of the project, Woodward built out retail space for Hattie Sparks, a boutique clothing store, and created white box space for Arhaus, a modern home furnishings store.

With 454 car parking spaces, The Park at South Market District has greatly improved the efficiency of downtown parking and contributed to the walkability of the surrounding area.
