So the new parking garage on Jefferson Street may have been completed several months ago, but the last time we checked in with the structure, it still had a tower crane. The garage is now owned by PARC and is officially dubbed the Jefferson Centre Garage. We appreciate the antiquated spelling of “centre” to evoke historic feelings about the structure.
The retail space is still listed for lease and despite its small size, about 1,000 square feet, it could make a great sandwich or coffee shop. The detailed treatment of the windows on the corner stair towers is quite nice as well. The structure is a fortress, though, and within five minutes of entering the structure and climbing to the top level to check out the view, a security guard was there to make sure I was all right.
