While the center continues to provide ample parking, The Patios Connection Project will focus on convenience and will improve the parking at The Patios today. With the addition of a 320-space parking lot on top of the new Costco, visitors will have new, easy access to The Patios and the planned luxury cinema and health and fitness center. Additionally, by reinvigorating the eastern portion of the property and the currently underutilized parking fields, and creating new access points and sought-after destinations, we’re improving the overall flow for the property as a whole.
A Fully Analyzed Parking Program
As part of the project, Westfield commissioned an independent third-party technical study based on best practices of the Urban Land Institute and the International Council of Shopping Centers to understand parking at the center now and in the future.
Conducted over two years, the technical study took actual parking counts at three different time periods on peak weekdays and weekends during July and the December holiday season. While the lots closest to The Patios were more parked than others, the technical study determined that there was ample parking for the property.
