The UCF Downtown Project, set to open August 26, 2019, will feature a private 580-space parking garage for students and employees.
The $13.5 million four-story garage will feature license plate recognition technology, security cameras, real-time space counts by floor, and electric charging stations.
The ground floor of the garage will house a university store, campus services, and storage space for campus supplies, UCF said.
UCF Downtown and the Creative Village will be anchored by the Dr. Phillips Academic Commons and the rest of the 68-acre property, to be filled with a mix of higher-education institutions, high-tech companies, startups, and housing for the people who will work, study, and play there.
“Today, we can plant a seed in downtown Orlando that will benefit our students, community, and state for decades to come,” former President John C. Hitt said on the project.
