Lindo’s erecting parking deck

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Lindo’s Market is planning a one-storey parking deck to help alleviate vehicle congestion at their location in Devonshire.

The new 6,200 square-foot car park will feature 26 additional parking bays and the structure will be shaded by exterior landscaping.

Lindo’s currently has approximately 100 parking bays, however, in busier times the area can become overcrowded with cars.

“We are always running out of parking spots particularly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays,” said Lindo’s Group President, Giorgio Zanol. “Even with the overflow parking at the two adjacent churches.”

He said that customers have long complained of the parking situation and with the limited space available, the “only way was to go up”.

“People like to go where they can park and don’t have to go round and round,” he said. “We have people coming for the store, the pharmacy and ATM, it will help relieve the congestion.”

Architects Linberg & Simmons were tapped to design the project and D&J Construction to build it.

The parking deck will cover three quarters of the existing lower parking lot and will have Bermuda slate covering the exterior. A concrete picket railing will enclose the top deck in an effort to “soften” the look.

“It was designed to make it blend in with its surroundings and the landscaping will have cedar trees and plantings along Brighton Hill Road,” said a representative from Linberg & Simmons.

Steel support framing will be installed in mid-March and customers will be able to park on the new deck by early May. Finishing touches will be completed throughout the following weeks.

“By the beginning of May, we’ll be back to normal plus 26 extra parking spaces,” said Mr Zanol.

When asked if Lindo’s Family Foods in Warwick will see a parking upgrade, Mr Zanol said: “We could use some but at the moment, nothing is planned”.
