North Scottsdale Park-and-Ride
Once a vacant lot, the new North Scottsdale Park-and-Ride is located on a 5.8-acre reclaimed site south of Scottsdale Airport at the end of an active runway and provides unique amenities for all users.
Working with the project architect, Kimley-Horn provided consulting services for the new park-and-ride facility that provides 450 parking spaces (some covered with solar panels), a passenger loading platform with custom shelters, and pedestrian linkages to the site. Other amenities at the facility include an office area, restroom for bus drivers, and storage and support spaces.
Our team provided civil and landscape architectural services from conceptual design through construction documents and permitting. We collaborated with the architect to create unique solutions to challenging site issues such as constructing a passenger platform while maintaining appropriate clearance from the adjacent airport Runway Protection Zone and developing a permeable pavement solution to maximize the site layout while still meeting stormwater requirements.
This project was designed to achieve net-zero energy use and incorporated many sustainable features, including LED lighting, solar panels, and pervious concrete pavement to minimize retention, manage stormwater, and maximize parking.
