San Diego International Airport (SAN) partnered with Swinerton to open SAN’s new Terminal 2 Parking Plaza. Watry Design and Gensler were also part of the design-build team for the structure.

Overall, the parking plaza adds 1,700 new new close-in parking spaces to SAN. The three-story facility measures almost one million square feet, with 2,900 total spaces. The project also includes off-site improvements, such as parking lot reconfigurations, utility relocations, and connection into the existing airport campus.

The plaza also uses natural lighting, energy-efficient fixtures, and a stormwater re-use system in an effort to be environmentally sustainable.

“We understand that convenient, close-in airport parking is a core customer service need, and we address that need with this beautiful new facility,” said Kimberly Becker, president and CEO of SAN. “Opening ahead of schedule and in time for the busy summer travel season, the Parking Plaza features smart parking technology and integrated public art for an enhanced overall parking experience.”
