The Beaverton Central District Public Parking Garage will bring a seven-story mixed-use garage with 270 public parking stalls and approximately 7,000 square feet of ground floor commercial retail space to Beaverton’s Central District. The lot where the garage is being built is on the location of a previous private parking lot, on the north side of The Round. 

Since the early 2000s, The Round and Beaverton Central district have experienced substantial office, commercial, restaurant, and housing development, including most recently moving City Hall, ScanlanKemperBard’s (SKB) significant investments, construction of South Plaza, and completion of The Arc Central. The Round’s existing, private parking garage was completed in 2006. The original plans for The Round called for the construction of a second garage to meet the anticipated future development at The Round and increased parking demand in the district. In 2015, in conjunction with the beginning of formal planning for the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts, planning began for the second parking garage in the Beaverton Central District. Both the Center for the Arts and District Parking Garage address goals expressed in the Beaverton Community Vision Plan (2010), Civic Plan (2011), Central Beaverton Urban Renewal Plan (2011), and Creekside District Master Plan (2014).

Once completed, the Beaverton Central Garage will be seven stories with 352 total vehicle parking stalls and approximately 7,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space. 270 of these parking spaces will be available for public use, and vehicles will access the garage off of Rose Biggi Avenue. The 270 public spaces will include four public electric vehicle charging stations and eight ADA accessible spaces. There will be five additional spaces dedicated to motorcycle parking. The garage will also have 82 spaces reserved for Lofts at The Round residents, replacing their surface parking spaces previously located at the site.

The Beaverton Central Garage features prominent public art elements at the corner of Rose Biggi and Crescent as well as on the north-facing wall. The garage was also designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, including the installation of solar panels and other environmentally friendly elements to reduce the impact to the area. A portion of the ground level of the garage will includes shared back-of-house spaces and loading areas for the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts.

The new Beaverton Central Garage is funded through the Beaverton Urban Redevelopment Agency (BURA) and construction funding was approved by the BURA Board on October 22, 2019 and the Beaverton City Council on November 5, 2019.

The garage is currently expected to be completed in late 2021.

Project Updates

Art Installation

Two pieces of stunning public art were recently installed at the BeavertonDone Editing Central Garage.

Art Installation of butterflies on Beaverton Central Garage, called "Gather"

by Will Schlough. Fender’s blue butterflies cut from aluminum entering a sliding door on the north wall of the Beaverton Central Garage. This species of butterflies only exists in western Oregon and were thought to be extinct in 1937, until they were rediscovered in 1989. The artist was inspired by that idea of rebirth and restoration and how the Beaverton Central Garage and Patricia Reser Center for the Arts will bring that to Beaverton.

Art Installation of children and patterns on Beaverton Central Garage, called "Common Threads"

“Common Threads”
by Addie Boswell, Van Cooley, Sara Siestreem, Antwoine Thomas. The art installation is made out of panels of perforated aluminum and features prominently on the southwest corner of the Beaverton Central Garage. It features two children-artists surrounded by stars and growing out of representations of Beaverton’s roots, featured on the bottom half. The piece is grounded by an Oregon White Oak Tree and a beaver dam, both important to indigenous peoples and the local environment. There are three basket-weave patterns included and each smaller patterned square represents a further piece of Beaverton’s history.

Sidewalk Repour

As we proceed with final touches and routine inspection, we are doing our best to ensure public investment in this area is realized with the highest standards and for the lasting enjoyment of our community. This is why the current perimeter sidewalk is being redone, to better guarantee safe, durable and long-lasting walkways, and remedy some early-identified issues. Pouring of the new sidewalk has already begun. Neighbors and visitors may experience noise and dust as construction proceeds during the next several weeks. Thank you in advance for your ongoing patience and understanding as we get closer to welcoming these important community assets.
