Member News: Park Assist’s M4 System Chosen to Upgrade Parking at SouthPointe Pavilions
LINCOLN, NEBRASKA – January 22nd, 2020 – Park Assist® has been selected by RED Development to install its M4 Parking Guidance System (PGS) at SouthPointe Pavilions in Lincoln, Nebraska. SouthPointe Pavilions is a bustling open-air shopping destination featuring over 55 shops, restaurants, and a movie theater complex. In addition to these traditional mall offerings, this shopping center is also designed to accommodate a variety of events, including outdoor summer concerts, fireworks, parades and art fairs. With the latest addition of the 220,000 square-foot Scheels store, this already popular location has seen a significant increase in activity. The Pavilions’ new 819 space parking structure, complete with Park Assist’s proprietary camera-based smart-sensor PGS, will help alleviate this additional traffic for the estimated 4.5 million annual vehicles visiting SouthPointe Pavilions.
The new garage, equipped with Park Assist’s M4 technology, will use color-coded smart-sensors to guide drivers to vacant spaces, decreasing traffic congestion and reducing the amount of time busy shoppers spend searching for parking. Upon returning to the garage, these customers will have an equally effortless experience finding their car by utilizing Park Assist’s customer-centric Find Your CarTM software add-on. By simply entering all or part of their license plate number into a Park Assist kiosk, this advanced vehicle locator feature will direct the guest to their vehicle’s exact location within the parking facility.
SouthPointe Pavilions’ PGS will also be equipped with Park Assist’s Park AlertsTM module. This software extension will allow the Pavilions to set automated rules and alerts that help parking staff manage awareness and control of activity within the garage and create a more efficient, safe, and secure facility.
Prior to this site in Nebraska, Park Assist’s PGS was installed at Omaha International Airport. Due to the airport system’s success and Park Assist’s extensive experience in the camera-based parking guidance industry, RED Development chose Park Assist’s M4 system to guarantee that all visitors at SouthPointe Pavilions have the ideal customer experience before they even begin shopping.
Partnering with Sampson Construction and Olsson Engineering, construction is scheduled to begin in February 2020 and is estimated for completion by June.
“Park Assist is very excited to announce this project with RED Development at SouthPointe Pavilions. The shopping center is such a popular destination and we are thrilled that Park Assist’s guidance system will be leveraged to help ease parking stress and increase ultimate customer satisfaction.” Said Jeff Sparrow, Account Manager.
