ATLANTA  – Manhattan Construction Co. has completed work on a $22 million, 447,193-square-foot parking garage adjacent to the Georgia State Capitol. The 10-story structure, which is owned by the state of Georgia for the use of its employees, features 1,169 parking spaces — 236 of which are reserved for state legislators — and two helipads.
The garage, which is on the former site of the Georgia Department of Transportation headquarters, opened this month.
Matthew Widmaier, a project manager in Manhattan’s Atlanta office, oversaw the construction of the facility. Stevens & Wilkinson designed the parking garage.
“We are proud of our efforts in creating this great addition to the Capitol area,” said Barton Plunkett, a senior vice president for Manhattan who oversees the firm’s Atlanta office. “This garage will serve the state well for years to come.”
