KANSAS CITY, Kan. — It's big and beautiful, and it's open (partially) for business.
Parking Garage 5, or P5, formally debuted last week on the main campus, just north of the Cambridge North Tower.
The 6-level, 2,069-space garage – heralded as the state's largest – initially accommodates more than 1,200 employees, students and residents of The University of Kansas Health System and University of Kansas Medical Center.
Patient and visitor parking will open in the fall. "The garage will greatly alleviate some of the parking issues we've been experiencing for quite some time," said John McDonough, the health system's vice president of facilities services and real estate development.
An enclosed pedestrian bridge will connect the garage to the new Cambridge North Tower, creating an enclosed walkway all the way to the Medical Office Building on the south side of the campus.
