The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) and the City of Atlantic City have embarked on a major redevelopment effort to revitalize the city’s core and establish a more active, vibrant environment in this heavily traveled entertainment district. TimHaahs worked with the CRDA to plan and develop a mixed-use parking facility to support the growing parking needs of the area along Christopher Columbus Boulevard, as well as contribute additional retail space to serve the neighborhood. The CRDA’s 1180-space mixed-use parking facility, “The Wave,” is part of this redevelopment initiative, providing additional parking capacity to support the parking needs of nearby retail, restaurants, residential housing, a Sheraton Hotel, the Atlantic City Convention Center and the Boardwalk Hall entertainment center. The structure features a number of unique elements, including metal screening, an LED digital billboard, modern lighting features, a solar panel array, six electric vehicle charging stations, and an EZ Pass reader.
