Columbus Council vote on Astor Park parking garage near Crew stadium

Columbus Council vote on Astor Park parking garage near Crew stadium

The Columbus City Council is scheduled to vote Monday to pay $21.82 million for the construction phase of a new parking garage at the new Astor Park mixed-use development adjacent to the Columbus Crew’s new Lower.com Field.

The council has previously approved at least $1.4 million for the design of the city-owned garage by Columbus-based architecture firm Moody Nolan, bringing the total cost to at least $23.22 million.

The city had estimated the cost at $25 million, but that was based on a garage that could hold up to 750 cars. The final design of the five-story garage calls for 677 spaces to “serve residents, workers, and visitors to the Astor Park area,” which was formerly known as Confluence Village until the team changed the name in honor of the Astor House hotel in New York City where the 1913 founding of the United States Football Association (now known as the US Soccer Federation) occurred.
