A permit has popped up for ground grading for a future 7.5 story parking garage at 1385 North Virginia Street.
1385 North Virginia is currently a four-story student housing project called Towers at Pink Hill. Yeah, I don't get the name either. There are no towers nor a pink hill. Anyway, the ground-level commercial tenant is Greater Nevada Credit Union, which happens to be the name the permit is under.
The only spots for a parking garage to go are two tiny parking lots to the north and south of the building, unless other neighboring buildings (a single family home to the south) are demolished. These tiny parking lots are barely big enough for cars as it is, so how will a parking garage be built on this property? Maybe it will be one of those cutting edge elevator parking garages that use elevators instead of ramps.

I can't wait to see how a 7.5 story parking structure squeezes into this space. This will be as interesting to watch play out as the 118 West Street permit.
