Brooklyn to build automated underground parking garage – under a public park

When the Willoughby Square Park opens in 2016, it will be home to an acre of green space, with mature trees, gardens, picnic areas, and water features for residents to enjoy. And underneath it all will be a state-of-the-art fully-automated 700-car parking garage that puts the cars out of sight, while also reducing the amount of exhaust pollution associated with idling in traditional parking garages.
