The owner of the Design Center of the Carolinas in South End plans to start construction soon on a new parking deck at Hawkins and Doggett streets that’s meant to relieve long-standing parking struggles.
The deck will include 520 spaces, built on a surface parking lot that currently has a fraction of that total. Chris Kieffer of Ram Real Estate, the Design Center’s owner, said the company plans to break ground on the parking deck in May.
“Parking has been an issue at the DCC (Design Center) and in South End in general for some time, so we’re taking steps to alleviate that problem,” said Kieffer in an email.
