The Channelside Parking Garage was designed by James Cornetet while working for HKS Architects. The project was a design-build solution for a 720 car parking structure and cruise ship vehicle staging area. The Channelside Parking Garage received an AIA Tampa Award of Merit in acknowledgment of the structure’s design. The jury awarded the project the Award of Merit because of the difficulty inherit in bringing design to the parking garage typology, the reduction of scale due to the composition and selection of materials, and the structures unique presence at night.
