Parking facilities have transformed from somewhere to leave your vehicle to innovative spaces with advanced parking technology. Drivers are not only looking for a parking spot but for convenience, proximity, comfort, safety, and more effortless ways to make payment. Over the last decade, institutions have adopted IoT, SaaS, and other smart parking software in their well-designed lots to enhance parking management within their facilities.
Across the world, enterprises are beginning to see how important it is to maintain and bring innovation into their parking facilities. Commercial parking garages and spaces have stepped up their game with unique designs and technologies, and we at Roker want to discuss our top five favorite lots globally.
These unique parking lots and garages elevate the form to new heights. The facilities listed below are not only able to accommodate sufficient parking spots for their visitors but provide much more.
