The project is proposed to be oriented towards Walnut Avenue with the following accesses: two on Walnut Avenue, one on Rose Avenue, and one emergency and special event access at the terminus of 19th Street. The proposed project would provide more than 1,100 on-site parking spaces in a two-level parking area and on a small surface lot.
