McCarthy Building Companies Completes New Parking Garage for the City of Chandler

November 5, 2019

McCarthy Building Companies Inc. has completed construction on the new $20 million, five-level, 293,000-square-foot Oregon Street parking garage for the City of Chandler, which is now the largest garage in Downtown Chandler providing 932 parking spaces.


The structure is located to the west of City Hall across Arizona Avenue on the northwest corner of Chicago and Oregon streets. Completed a month early, it adds much needed parking options for those accessing City Hall, restaurants and other venues in the bustling area.

 “The Downtown is the heart and urban core of our City,” said Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “With New Square opening later this year, along with the new additions to our Historic Square, free parking will always be a welcomed and important amenity for our residents, businesses and visitors.”


The garage provides an enhanced pedestrian connection between Downtown Chandler and the New Square development to the east of the parking structure with the potential for future ground-floor retail within the parking structure. The project also included the installation of a new traffic intersection at Arizona Avenue and Chicago Street, which will improve the traffic flow as more vehicles access the garage and the future New Square development.


Additionally, this parking garage has more architectural and art elements than any other garage McCarthy has built in the Southwest region. Incorporated features include a concrete form liner along the perimeter walls, as well as three different types of metal panels, including mesh fabric along the stairs where color changing LED lighting are displayed. As the City of Chandler includes art in every downtown project, the team allocated funds toward functional artistic aspects that include pedestrian benches and louvered canopies designed by coLab Studio and Jeff Zischke.


“McCarthy was able to utilize our self-perform team for cast-in-place concrete as well as electrical and mechanical work on this project, which provided added value in the form of cost savings, quality control and schedule acceleration to the City,” said David Clarkson, Project Director for McCarthy Building Companies. “We understand that construction zones can be a headache for local businesses. We are pleased to have been able to complete the project a month early.”
