Parking at New Downtown Apartments to Depend on Transit Center

Developer Fairmount Properties plans to use PARTA's Kent Central Gateway for parking for residents, patrons at new "Building C."

People looking to live in downtown Kent's newest apartment building will have to park in PARTA's new Kent Central Gateway transit center.

The site plan submitted to the city for Fairmount Properties' Building C, which will be built at the corner of Erie and South DePeyster streets, shows the building's tenants will most likely have to park in the new deck under construction on the opposite corner of the same intersection.

A site plan for the building presented this month to the Kent Architectural Review Board shows no parking on site.

"The proposed parking plan for this building is to utilize the multi-modal facility for the residential needs and restaurant parking," the city building staff report on the project states.

The building will include 32 apartments with the restaurant Bricco on the ground floor.

The overall site plan is on the agenda for the Kent Planning Commission Dec. 18.
