Victorian Square Parking Structure

Sparks, Nevada

In January 1996, the City of Sparks gave Komorous-Towey Architects and the Watry Design Group the challenge to design a parking structure that would incorporate the Victorian theme established for their new downtown retail and movie theater complex. This structure was to be designed within the established budget and within a very aggressive schedule of three and one half months. These goals were met and the structure completed construction in August 1997.

The main focal points of the structure are the stair and elevator towers located at the corners. The massing of the building mirrors the curved corner of the site. This 702 stall parking structure is the largest single building in the complex and will be duplicated as part of the master plan for the entire complex on the opposite side of the theater. The design incorporates expansion opportunities to the south. Double bay panels in the design reduce the perceived length and height of the structure.

KTA received awards from both the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the International Parking Institute (IPI) for this project.
