To accommodate current need and allow for future growth, The Memphis International Airport decided to expand its parking garage by over 6,000 spaces. The scope will consist of an expansion on the north side of the existing garage of around 3,900 spaces. The phase includes a seven-level “Squeelix” structure for vehicular circulation and three main open stair towers for pedestrian circulation. Also included are a 6,000 SF state-of-the-art Toll Plaza & Parking Office and a four-car elevator tower directly in line with the center of the terminal. A 2,400 space parking garage structure will be located directly to the west of the first structure and will have a similar look. It is all screened by an airfoil shaped panel which offers a clean modern appearance to the façade.

"Great care has been taken to make this a highly attractive facility, the nation's most functional and passenger centric facility, a green approach to ground transportation and a complement to the existing airport infrastructure. "

– Larry Cox, CEO of Airport Authority
