As part of the $300 million Rowan Boulevard Redevelopment Project, O&S Associates provided architectural and engineering services for the parking garage. Through a public/private partnership between Glassboro Township, Rowan University and Nexus Properties the garage is designed to serve the parking needs of both the town and the university.

O&S Associates redesigned existing plans for the garage and eliminated over 2 1/2 levels of structured parking while maintaining the required car count. This new design created a cost savings of over 30% to the project and made the financing for the project viable. This portion of the redevelopment project also included the “E1” classroom building which is directly adjacent to the garage and separated from the garage by a precast firewall.

The garage is a three bay structure using a single center ramp with two way traffic and a one-way traffic pattern on the outside bays creating two side by side helixes for the vertical circulation up and down the facility. The garage is directed connected to the adjacent “E-1” Building through two stair elevator cores at both ends of the garage. These stair / elevator towers serve both the building and the garage. Additionally, a third stair elevator tower is provided at Bulldog Way Street. The garage is a six level garage designed with the capacity of an added future floor.
