Vanderbilt/Larned Parking Garage

Syracuse, NY

The Vanderbilt/Larned parking facility is located downtown, in the Hanover Square Historic District of the City of Syracuse, New York.  The City of Syracuse had a need for additional parking space in the city’s financial business district.  Partnering with the National Development Council, the City of Syracuse, and Onandaga Savings Bank (Now M&T Bank) moved forward with the development of the Vanderbilt/Larned parking facility, a five-floor, 515 space facility which combined the renovation of the Vanderbilt garage and the construction of the new Larned portion to resolve the shortage of available public parking in the area.

Not only does the Vanderbilt/Larned parking facility assist in eliminating the parking congestion that plagued the district before its construction, but, because the project involved the preservation of the Larned  Building’s historic façade as the exterior of this new parking structure, it enhances the area, and is an important contributor to the preservation of the  historic streetscapes  in downtown Syracuse.
