The Meadows Drive Garage will be a 5-tier parking garage intended to serve the shared parking needs of the Meadows Neighborhood as it grows over time. It is positioned north of Washington Road and allows drivers to park immediately upon entering the new campus. In its initial phase, the Garage will include 612 spaces for the graduate student residents of the Meadows Neighborhood, as well as parking for athletic events and visitors. A fabric façade will adorn the garage softening the appearance and providing an architectural backdrop to the Washington Road landscape. The Garage will include 20 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations (capable of charging 40 EVs at one time), and is designed to allow for a rooftop solar array to be added at a later date.
Robust tree-planting, landscaping, and architectural screening will respect the site's natural setting. Garage driveways will connect to new and improved campus roadways that are being designed to efficiently manage vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic. This project meets or exceeds Princeton's sustainability standards. The University is seeking ParkSmart certification, a standard established by Green Business Certification, Inc..
