The Foundry Parking Garage
The Foundry Project transformed three city blocks of historic downtown Loveland, Colorado into a mixed-use entertainment center with a movie theater, apartments, 102-room hotel, retail, restaurants, and 461 spaces of public and private parking. The $75 million project is anchored by a 43,000-square feet community plaza between the buildings with an outdoor park and seating space.
Residential parking is below grade, partially under a residential building and paseo that connect the plaza to the surrounding streets. The P3-funded public parking is a 5-level precast concrete structure above the residential parking areas. In addition to the parking layout, circulation, wayfinding, and access control, WGI also designed the waterproofing and durability aspects of the parking garage.
The city commissioned two different artists to create a public art installation consisting of murals that wrap the Second Street and Lincoln Avenue facades.
