Santa Monica Lookout
|Olympics, New Parking Garage on Santa Monica Planning Commission Agenda||
By Jonathan Friedman
July 12, 2016 -- Meeting for the first time in nearly a month, the Planning Commission will tackle a number of issues on Wednesday, including a proposal for a new parking structure and the possibility of Santa Monica hosting Olympic events in 2024.
The 670-space, two-story parking structure is proposed for an empty lot in an industrial area near the intersection of Michigan Avenue and 26th Street.
This structure “will primarily provide parking to the adjacent buildings and users,” according to a staff report.
A pedestrian walkway is also planned that would connect 26th Street to Michigan Avenue.
Santa Monica College was the starting point for the men’s and women’s marathon in the 1984 Olympics. The women’s marathon took place for the first time at the Olympics that year.
