WMATA unveils six-level parking garage at Huntington station


Yesterday, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority opened a new parking garage at the Huntington Metrorail station on the Yellow Line in Alexandria, Va.

The $31.1 million, six-level parking facility will accommodate 1,424 vehicles. The garage replaces a 924-space surface lot. The station now provides parking for 3,558 vehicles in three garages and two lots.

The new parking facility is part of a mixed-use project that calls for developing a 60-acre parcel next to the Huntington station. Plans include 55 town homes, 420 low-rise multi-family units, 175 high-rise condominiums, 250,000 square feet of office space, 30,000 square feet of retail space and 12 acres set aside for the Fairfax County Park authority.
