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."
The Hive Automated Parking Structure is the first and only fully automated parking structure in Northern California. 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. The structure used 69% less construction material per parking space. The Hive Parking Structure is currently being certified under the US Green Building Council through its Parksmart program, the LEED equivalent for parking structures, as the first of its kind in the US.
"CityLift Parking and Signature Development Group are based right here in Oakland, and to have this type of innovative technology being built right in our backyard says a lot about the success of this city," says Oakland Mayor, Libby Schaaf. "These parking innovations are already spreading across the United States and I'm so proud that it started right here in Oakland."
