It was in early December of 1997 that two 19th-century structures in downtown Annapolis burned to the ground - an event that was followed by years of controversy about the rebirth of the area's pricey real estate and the eventual sale of the property.Today, however, construction is finally under way. As mandates from the U.S. National Park Service and the city's Historic District Commission (HDC) dictate, what is now known as 7 State Circle will have an old yet modern look, complete with offices, ground-floor retail condominiums and a parking garage that evokes images of a James Bond movie rather than harkening back to the days of colonial patriot Jonas Green.
“In Europe and Asia, the development history, traffic patterns, and parking ''culture'' are different, she said, and cities simply are not built to accommodate the hulking presence of a typical ramped structure. There are roughly 5,000 automated garages on those two continents”

''This is amazingly proficient use of space,'' commented Darius Sollohub, a New Jersey Institute of Technology professor who studies parking and urban land use. ''It may provide one of the solutions to the most important conflict in urban design: where do you put all the cars in environments where car volume is high and space is at a premium?''

“Although an automated garage is more expensive to build it typically takes only about half as much precious real estate as a conventional ramped garage to handle the same number of cars, or even more. That is why in European and Asian cities, the automatic garage was long ago anointed as the best solution, Mr. Sollohub said. “

“Urban land use specialists say that this sort of situation will continue to occur in congested American cities, and that automated parking could become a widely used option.”

Benefits of the automatic parking system include: optimization of space utilization, security (vehicle and personal), convenience (all ground level access), lower garage owner's liability insurance, greater depreciation schedule, lower lighting and ventilation requirements (no cars driving around inside; no people go inside), and lower emissions and less pollution (clean parking system).
“The garages can squeeze up to twice the number of cars in the same space as a conventional garage and don't require attendants. The automated valet, so to speak, will fetch your car in minutes. Parking has never been this easy”
“The Unites States has taken a great leap forward in the parking department, with the opening of a fully automated parking facility.”

The influential American "Kiplinger Letter" said they expect automated parking to be so widespread as to be commonplace in the US by 2007.

“Instead of ramps, with entrance and exit lanes, the entrance to the garage is simplicity itself. The driver drives his or her car into one of several entrance bays at grade level, gets out of the car, keeps the keys”

“Because no one enters the garage itself, it virtually eliminates any danger of vandalism, scratches, dents or theft of a vehicle. And more importantly, it eliminates any threat of personal danger. No more having to walk around alone in a dark, dangerous garage looking for one's car, and the convenience of all ground level access. No more having to take elevators or walk up stairs with heavy parcels to search for one's car.”

“As one expert enthused: "Automated parking provides all the convenience of a valet service - without the valet, practically no wait, and no tip!"

Vertical parking devices, like the steel stacking shelves that hold several cars, are common around the city, but a new vertical parking system that can turn two street-level parking spaces into a dozen has come to Brooklyn.

Three 43-foot-tall steel structures from Parkmatic, a company based in New York, were recently installed in a parking lot on the corner of Tillary and Gold Streets. The system tries to simplify vertical parking by stacking cars on an automated Ferris wheel of sorts and has increased the capacity of the Brooklyn lot almost 30 percent.

The difference between Parkmatic’s carousel and standard space-maximizing devices is that it doesn’t require moving vehicles out of the way to get to other cars. In a typical two-, three- or four-high stacker, the bottom vehicles must be moved out of the way so the top shelves can be lowered to the ground.

A keypad at the front of each carousel allows lot attendants to select the vehicle they want. An electric motor hums quietly as a double roller chain and steel links bring hinged trays down and then back up, as on a Ferris wheel. In about two minutes, which depends on the number of cars the carousel is set up to hold, the top car can be brought to street level. The machine moves clockwise and counterclockwise, and a computer chooses the quickest direction for the vehicle that has been selected.

The parking lot is not far from the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and is at the center of a rapidly changing area. A few months ago, the 43-foot-tall steel structures would have stood out among the low buildings that lined the block. But high-rise buildings are going up many places in high-traffic Downtown Brooklyn, so they seem to fit in now.

“We have quite a few developers who are interested in this because of land value,” Max Wassef, principal owner of Parkmatic, said. “In conventional garages, the overall development cost of each space is $25,000 to $30,000. This lowers the cost to about $16,000 per space.”

Parking carousels are nothing new. Mr. Wassef says they were developed in the 1920s. According to the Parkmatic website, a handful were installed in Chicago and New York.

“Back then, we never really had a need with so much land, so it never took off,” he said.
But the idea found a home in Asia and Europe. Mr. Wassef says there are 700 Parkmatic carousel systems worldwide, and the Brooklyn system is the company’s first in the United States.

Michael Zacharias, who owns the lot on Tillary Street, said he had been trying to find a better way to use the space for about a decade. When he found out about the parking carousel, he visited its factory in Korea to see the system for himself.

He said it took about eight months to complete the city’s regulatory process for the carousels, mostly because there was a four-level height restriction in the area. So he can now park 138 cars in his lot, 30 more than before, but if he could fill the lot with carousels and get the zoning approval, that would increase to 648.

Mr. Wassef said the carousels could be set up to accommodate seven to 12 vehicles and be ordered with enough space for all but the largest sport utility vehicles, like Hummers and Chevrolet Suburbans. The carousels are also assembled to meet local seismic and wind resistance standards, and they have safety beams that stop the mechanism if someone or something gets in the way.

Mr. Zacharias said now that the regulatory ice had been broken, he planned to install carousels at other lots he owned around the city.

Please give me an exact location of the office and an appointment. E-mailed you but no answer. Thanks
Sir I belong to Imphal, Manipur state,India. In this state, most of the area is hills and the plain area is very small. And thus there is a big problem of parking facilities for all purposes and establishment. The vertical system parking will be an ultimate and economical option for this problem. I want to do marketing and sell the vertical parking system on your behalf. How could I get the marketing permission from your company?
