SyncPark is part of the planning process for a number of projects, offering new options and choices to developers for improved design and profitability. SyncPark is currently not engaged in an aggressive marketing campaign, yet developers continue to seek out SyncPark as its reputation as a cost-effective and reliable parking solution spreads.
Large Scale China Project
SyncPark is working with Harmony Holdings, an experienced private equity invesstment group, on a very large-scale project to build scores of automated parking garages in several cities in China. Check this space for more information soon.
Urban Mixed Use Development
Long Island City, Queens (New York City), NY
SyncPark has been chosen by the developer to provide an automated parking solution for 155 spaces in an underground facility. The ParkPerfect System will satisfy the parking requirement in ±12,000 square feet (1,100m2) versus ±22,000 square feet (2,000m2) for conventional parking, thereby freeing up 10,000 square feet (900m2) of space either for other use or to increase the number of available spaces. In addition, the site is hindered by a high water table which would normally require extensive excavation and shoring expense. By reducing the facility depth requirement from ±10 feet to ±8 feet, SyncPark will mitigate the cost of building in a wet zone with poor soil.
Energy efficiency was another reason the developer chose SyncPark. Using less than ½ kWh to store and retrieve a vehicle, the power requirement is much less than any current automated parking solution on the market and much less than the consumption needed to light, ventilate and maintain a standard parking area.
With the effectiveness of this project, SyncPark is reaching out to developers and contractors who can either increase development density by increasing the amount of parking, reduce a project’s footprint by consolidating the volume dedicated to parking or a combination thereof.
Commuter Parking Rockville Centre, NY
Rockville Centre is a suburb of New York City located on Long Island with a population of 24,000 of which a sizable percentage commutes daily by train to and from New York. As a result, the town has nearly 3,500 commuter parking spaces leavingthe downtown area scarred by ±20 acres (8 ha) of commuter parking. This has taken away space for a town square, sporting fields and most detrimental, hourly parking to support local businesses. SyncPark has produced a plan for the town that reduces the commuter parking to less than 8 acres (3 ha), freeing up valuable downtown land for civic, private or other development, as directed by the community.
This project illustrates how developers, contractors, transit authorities and communities interested in smart development can use SyncPark to convert valuable town center properties now used solely for parking into transit oriented developments - while actually increasing the total amount of parking available.
New Jersey Hospital
SyncPark is in discussion with a hospital in northern New Jersey to solve immediate and long-term parking needs with a garage of between 900 and 1,200 spaces.
Medical facilities are notoriously under-parked, and this major hospital is no exception. SyncPark is exploring options for a stand-alone automated garage built upon an existing parking lot that would provide an immediate ±200 spaces to help alleviate the exisitng shortage.
Long term, however, the hospital's development plan includes a new 200,000 square foot (18,500m2), 4-story medical arts building which is in the early planning stages. This building will require ±1,000 parking spaces. SyncPark will be able to provide these spaces in a 3-level 26’ (7.9m) high plinth, significantly less space than would be required normally. In addition to space advantages, this parking facility will have valet style parking without the delay, expense or risk of valet service; entry and exit points will be integrated with the lobby allowing patients the ultimate in convenience.
This project demonstrates SyncPark's ability to increase parking density for hospitals and communities and combine that savings with lobby-side access thereby eliminating the high cost and risk of valet parking. These will vastly improve the patient experience.
