Crossroads Parking Structure
Making a parking garage the hip place to be
Helix designed more than just a parking garage. We created a center point for the urban community in the bustling Crossroads Arts District. During the day, the upper floors of the parking structure are filled with cars from an adjacent advertising agency. In the evening, the building turns into a large public canvas, as shadows dance across the illuminated frosted-glass façade. The structure received the most prestigious Design Excellence award from the International Parking Institute as well as an AIA Art in Architecture award for the integration of a sculpture by local Kansas City artist, Jim Woodfill, along a pedestrian walkway.
