Linking Parking and Development
Anchorage Community Development Authority (ACDA) supports public-private partnerships that are financially sound and align with the mission of ACDA linking new parking development to private development projects. ACDA supports economic growth for downtown Anchorage and wants to be a part of creative parking solutions.
Developers building in downtown Anchorage (zoning districts B-2A, B-2B and B-2C) are not required to provide on-site parking for their tenants. However, providing parking for employees, clients and customers is a priority for most major tenants and business owners. Fortunately, Anchorage Community Development Authority (ACDA) is ready to work with and assist developers in identifying parking needs and providing parking solutions. ACDA can assist in achieving economically sound projects for proposed private development by lowering parking construction costs and/or creating a potential positive revenue source for the project.
Development Links with Parking
ACDA supports public-private partnerships that are financially sound and align with the mission of ACDA linking new parking development to private development projects. As development in downtown Anchorage continues, demand for parking will grow and ACDA wants to be a part of creative parking solutions for developers looking to add or create parking as part of their downtown development or construction projects.
Private Public Partnerships
ACDA can assist in achieving economically sound projects for proposed private development by lowering parking construction costs and/or creating a potential positive revenue source for the project.
