Second Street Ramp

Second Street Ramp

Mankato, MN

210 Units

The City of Mankato made a long term commitment to increase the number of parking facilities in the downtown core to reduce the shortfall in parking stalls, increase the use of downtown businesses by citizens and visitors, and ultimately to bolster ongoing revitalization of the City center.

The plans to redevelop the existing HECO building at the corner of Second and Hickory Streets resulted in the City contracting for the design of a parking structure. The project was delivered as a design-build project in close cooperation with the Construction Manager At Risk, Knutson Construction. Cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete was selected as the structural system for the ramp due to its design flexibility, durability, and proven performance in parking facilities. The ramp provides 210 parking stalls that provide easy access to the Intergovernmental Center, HECO Office Building, and the historic Brett’s Building.

The ramp is sited at a transitional area from historical structures to more modern buildings, and therefore the design of the ramp also provides a visual transition between these contrasting building types.
