The Pearl-Elm Garage is set to undergo an $18 million total makeover, announced City Manager Edward Augustus Jr.

“Making long overdue repairs and upgrades to the Pearl-Elm Garage is a priority as our city continues to develop and evolve. Investing in a facility that is used by area businesses as well as visitors going to events at Mechanics Hall, the DCU Center, the Palladium and other destinations is vital to achieving a vibrant downtown,” said Augustus.

The Renovation

The garage will receive full-scale structural repairs including new concrete and steel, upgraded decking and a new façade, elevators, and stairwells.

Also included in the renovations will be the installation of a new security system, and fire protection system in addition to improved LED lighting.

During the entire renovation period the garage will remain open for use.
