The Green Street Garage will be closing temporarily for reconstruction Spring 2021. Garage re-opening is anticipated for late Fall 2021.  

The existing Green Street Garage will undergo demolition this Spring to make way for much needed improvements. When completed, the new garage will feature a total of 7 levels of parking, with an increase of 95 spacesThis project comes in combination with the Asteri and the Ithacan development projects. Together, these projects will result in the construction of two 11- story buildings, with 181 permanently affordable living units above a community conference center and 200 market rate apartments. These projects will transform Green Street, with reimagined public spaces and much needed infrastructure updates. Demolition of the existing garage is scheduled to begin in March 2021. Updates and detailed timeline information for this project will be available on the City's Parking Information Page under "Parking News". The Cayuga and Seneca Street Garages will remain open during this project.
