To address the demand for parking around the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority (FCCFA) Board conducted a site feasibility study resulting in the addition of a new garage on the east side of the Convention Center.

The precast garage has six levels with approximately 650 total parking spaces.
The parking facility incorporates a single helix design with 90-degree parking and two-way traffic in the two bays. Safety features include glazed stair towers, emergency phones on each level, and open stair and elevator lobbies.
