Formerly known as the Arts Grounds Parking Garage, the Culbreth Road Parking Garage was
built to replace parking spaces that had been eliminated from the A9 parking lot
due to the new Studio Art Building construction project as well as to supplement
Central Grounds parking needs. Although parking during the day will require a permit,
it will be open without charge to visitors for evening and weekends and provide parking for
events at the Culbreth Theatre and Carr’s Hill.
The new garage is accessed from Culbreth Road across from the existing Culbreth Theatre /
Drama Education Building and south of the CSX railroad tracks. The garage is depressed
into a ravine with two levels below the entrance grade. The east side of the garage will
help form one side of the new Arts Precinct. The 174,100 square
feet structure is pre-cast concrete and features green screen panels planted
with a mixture of deciduous and evergreen vines and brick stair towers which
complement the other arts precinct buildings.
