  • I mean. Free parking after 6 p.m. I have such a hard time finding parking DT and I can usually get in here. Pretty clean parkade! Awesome
  • Always park here when going downtown and I've never had problems. Staff are helpful.
  • Lots of space. Friendly staff. Good security.
  • This parkade is large and has many spots. It features on-site security and has an elevator to assist you to upper floors and multiple stairways. It's lit up to ensure safety. HOWEVER, you don't want to break down in here... it's not very friendly to negotiate in when things go south!
  • Car got broken into and security said what u expect we only get minimum wage
