St. Armands Parking GarageUntil recently, the only downside to St. Armands Circle being one of the hottest destinations in the Sarasota/Longboat Key area was the stiff competition for a convenient parking space, but not anymore.

Beginning in mid-February, the City of Sarasota’s new 500 plus space parking garage was opened, taking pressure off the approximately 1,100 spaces in and around the circle. The parking garage is conveniently located on N. Adams Drive across from St. Armands Key Lutheran Church.

Most of the materials used in the project were recycled and a total of 98 environmentally friendly solar panels are installed atop the new garage to absorb sunlight and convert it into usable energy for the garage.

Beyond just being a place to park your car, this garage offers five electric charging stations, a tire inflation station and public restrooms. More importantly, it gives patrons of this popular destination the confidence to know their day will be free from parking hassles.

Come see for yourself. There’s never been a better time to plan a day shopping, dining and relaxing on St. Armands Circle.
