Parking as Problem-Solving: 9/17/13 NYC Innovation Salon

GPC and our salons continue to foster innovation and celebrate leadership in the ways that parking structures and spaces are created, managed, utilized and ultimately incorporated into the fabric of city life.

NYC’s 2013 Innovation Acceleration Salon continues the exploration of the parking garage in the built and natural environments. This year we introduce the transformative Green Garage Certification and focus on four key ways in which parking increasingly will contribute to the development of sustainable cities.
