Work started in November 2010 to demolish the old 1970’s parking garage and replace it with a new 4-story structure. The new modern structure meets current seismic structural standards, is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and is designed for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. Electric vehicle charging stations are available (for a fee) on floors 1 and 4 adjacent to the elevators.
The design of the new garage has improved safety features, with pedestrian access to the upper levels provided via two glass front elevators and three well-lit, open stairways. Improvements to Paseo del Oro, the courtyard between the structure and East 14th Street, include decorative paving, a new bus shelter, and landscaping, including a row of palm trees leading to the main pedestrian entrance. The Estudillo Avenue frontage of the garage includes an office space for the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce.
