New Downtown Parking Garage in San Leandro.
San Leandro’s new downtown parking garage will opened on Monday, Nov. 12.
A ribbon-cutting event is planned for Friday, Nov. 16 at 8:30 a.m.
“We are extremely pleased to announce the opening of the new Downtown Parking Garage,” said San Leandro Mayor Stephen Cassidy. “The garage will play a critical role in enhancing our downtown by offering convenient parking for employees and customers of our downtown businesses.”
The garage, located at 120 Estudillo Ave., contains 384 parking spaces, a capacity increase of about 50 percent over the facility it replaces. The garage supports existing businesses in downtown San Leandro by providing parking for employees and business patrons, while leaving San Leandro’s surface lots and street parking for shoppers.
A centralized parking facility also facilitates higher density development in the downtown, consistent with the goals of the city’s transit oriented development strategy, according to the city.
The first floor of the structure will offer two hours free parking. The second and third floors will offer monthly permit parking. Permits will be $70/month for a reserved space and $45/month for unreserved parking.
The fourth floor will offer full day parking – free through Dec. 31, 2013, $2.50 per day thereafter.
Parking will be free and unrestricted throughout the garage after 5 p.m. daily, and all day on weekends.
Funding for the garage was provided by the former San Leandro Redevelopment Agency, and the project came in under budget. No funds from the City’s general fund were used for this project.
