“They won’t have a hard time filling the apartments,” he said. “There has already been some interest in the apartments.”
The city hopes to break ground on the parking garage in November and have it completed in the spring of 2014.
McCormack said the plan is to allow two-hour free parking on the first floor of the garage, and all-day parking on the second through fourth floors at no cost.
“We’re hoping downtown employees will use the parking garage and make on-street parking available for the public,” he said.
