George Economas, JHH director of parking
and transportation services, welcomes the first phase of the campus
master plan: the employees-only Orleans Street garage.
For thousands of employees and visitors,
parking patterns are about to change
The long-awaited “domino effect” of the East Baltimore
campus redevelopment begins officially early in September when
the Orleans Street garage opens, the Broadway garage falls—and
hundreds of employees alter their campus parking rituals.
The new garage—with all of 2,300 spaces and five levels,
one of which can hold more vehicles than the entire Rutland garage—is
the first major milestone in the much-anticipated campus “master
plan.” The plan expands the borders of the medical complex
to such an extent that employees and visitors will find themselves
increasingly engaged in an age-old aerobic activity: walking.
