Grand Canyon University has submitted a rezoning request to the City of Phoenix to build a five-story parking garage on the NEC of 31st Avenue and Camelback Road in Phoenix.
The structure is meant to alleviate anticipated parking needs in the area for GCU students and other campus events. It will also “provide additional parking to support student housing within the larger Grand Canyon University campus,” stated the submitted proposal.
The parking garage will support approximately 1,928 vehicles and will be open and made of pre-cast concrete. It will stand on just less than 5 acres and is valued between $40M and $50M. Primary access to the site will be from the SEC on Camelback Road. A private drive will be built to connect the new structure to additional GCU properties to the north and east.
