Dublin Transit Parking Garage & Plaza
Basis of Design Architect (Program, Conceptual, Schematic Design, Design Development)
5 Levels, 570 Parking Spaces
AE3 is serving as the Designer / Basis of Design Architect for a new ground-up 5 level, 570 space Transit Oriented Parking Garage for Alameda County in Dublin, CA. The project is anticipated to serve commuters coming from the Central San Joaquin Valley Area looking to commute to the Bay Area via the adjacent Dublin BART station. The project is jointly funded by Alameda County, Caltrans and Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA).
With a focus on sustainability, the project prioritizes parking for EV Vehicles and EV Commuter Vans on the lower level, and the project also accommodates driver-less vehicles provided by LAVTA that provide local access to the surrounding neighborhood. The roof of the garage will have a full-sized solar array that will allow the structure to achieve Zero Net Energy (ZNE) and potentially generate power for the grid. The project will use this PV, high fly ash content concrete, high efficiency LED lighting and other means to achieve LEED Gold. The project will use “green-screen” along the exterior to help soften the mass of the structure.
