CityLift Parking and Signature Development Group Held a Grand Opening Ceremony for the Hive Parking Structure

"With the launch of the Hive Automated Parking Structure, we now provide a better parking solution for our tenants and their customers that is cost effective and environmentally sustainable," says Mike Ghielmetti, President of Signature Development Group. "It's a parking system that represents the future of real estate."

Built on a 1,600 square foot footprint, about the size of seven parking spaces, the structure increases the parking capacity by almost six-fold to 39 vehicles.
