DUMBO – There’s a new option for parking in the car-crowded DUMBO – but it’s not cheap.
The underground garage at 60 Water Street is now open with 300 spaces at a price of $ 450 per month. The 24-hour garage has three levels, has self-parking and drivers do not need to be residents of the luxury building to access it.
The monthly rate appears to be one of the most expensive in the neighborhood, with other garages in the neighborhood costing almost $ 100 less per month.
The lot at 85 Adams St. has 52 seats and costs $ 362.40 per month; 55 Washington St. has 120 spaces at a monthly rate of $ 362.40; and 20 Jay St. offers 120 spots for $ 339.75 per month.
Parking spaces are also available for daily use, relieving a neighborhood that is overrun with visitors on weekends.
“Parking is a major problem here,” said Hide, a DUMBO resident, who wrote a blog about the neighborhood called DUMBONYC. “With the increase in the number of tourists and businesses in the area, additional parking space relieves the burden of cars circling around city blocks looking for limited parking on the street. “
Hide added that many garages have closed in recent years, including the Old Fulton parking lot and the lot at 90 Washington Street which had 250 spaces.
A garage attendant at 60 Water Street said there had been a massive demand for parking spaces on weekends.
“There are a lot of daytime parking lots on weekends,” he said. “The spaces fill up and sometimes we have to push people back.”
Seats are $ 17 for one hour, $ 27 for 10 hours, and $ 34 for 24 hours.
60 Water St. is a 17-story luxury apartment building with 290 residential units and a rooftop terrace designed by High Line architects James Corner Field Operations.
The building, designed by LEESER Architecture, is expected to be completed this year.
