Among the new parking options for Chapman University staff, faculty and commuter students this fall semester will be the newly-completed West Campus Parking Structure on North Cypress Street.
Although briefly available during spring and summer, the garage is currently roped off during the final construction phases of the Digital Media Arts Center built for Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. It is expected to be reopened by the opening of the fall semester, said Kris Eric Olsen, vice president of Campus Planning and Operations.
The 360-stall structure was built by Bomel Construction Co., one of the largest concrete contractors in California and widely considered the dean of parking structure construction in the West.
The six-level garage sits on Cypress Street, just steps away from the Metrolink train station and across from Dodge College. Motorists parking there will have access to three electric vehicle charging stations within the structure.
In addition to the parking building, Bomel’s work included construction of an adjacent sand volleyball court, a half basketball court and a pocket park with benches.
