Garage History

Who would have thought, but the Motor Mart Garage has brought both architectural beauty and emerging technology to parking for nine decades.

The double helix ramp design of 1927 still speeds customers to the most convenient empty parking space.

Daily Maintenance Preserves the Beauty

The renovation won several awards for preservation and restoration, a status we work hard to maintain.

The renovation of 1999 restored every corner to its original stunning Art Deco condition and the staff of the Motor Mart is present and working on the floors twenty-four hours every day to maintain the environment, condition and brightness that creates the convenient and safe parking experience at the Motor Mart Garage.
