West Hollywood automated parking garage

The City of West Hollywood (LA) engaged technology company Unitronics to design, engineer, fabricate, install and maintain a 200-car automated vehicle storage and retrieval system for the City Hall. This is a $2.6 million project, according to the City’s website.

The automated parking system is indeed impressive, with the automated garage able to hold as many as three times the number of cars as traditional ramp-style parking garage, and less expensive to build when compared to conventional parking garages. Automated garages utilise computer-controlled motorised lifts, conveyors and shuttles to transport cars from the arrival level to a parking space and back again, without human assistance.

And here’s an interview with Don Monahan, of Walker Parking Consultants about the project

Parking & Traffic Consultants’ Cristina Lynn interviewed US based consultant Barbara Chance in September last year on the topic of automated car parks in general and a Philadelphia project in particular. You can view the full interview here.
