As the City of San Luis Obispo develops its downtown core, it wished to integrate ample parking to support future development. Watry Design was hired to develop the final parking structure design for this site and provide the environmental and entitlement clearances for the project. Watry Design and our team of consultants prepared design options of the structure, conducted public workshops to gather feedback and are currently developing the EIR documents and working on the entitlement clearances. 

The proposed parking structure will provide 410 parking stalls. In keeping with the City's goals, the design includes 5,000 square feet of retail on two levels and incorporates space to relocate the historic San Luis Obispo Little Theater. A pedestrian path will connect users to Monterey Street, with vehicle entries and exits on Palm and Nipomo Streets. The structure is designed to fit within the context of its surroundings and preserves the existing large oak tree on Monterey Street.
