The ParkingPLUS Design Challenge, sponsored by the Rauch Foundation's Long Island Index project, was launched to encourage transformative thinking about parking structures in suburban downtowns in order to meet changing area needs and desires. This article profiles four architectural design teams and their innovative submissions for the Design Challenge. In addition to design, the firms offered analysis on how to finance and maintain their structures and on the economic benefits of their design to local communities. The four designs profiled are: Iconic Arches for Rockville Centre by Utile, Inc.; Ronkonkoma Parks and Rides by Roger Sherman Architecture + Urban Design (RSAUD); Train Terraces: Incubating Urbanism in Westbury by LTL Architects; and Main Street Brackets: Shared Parking in Patchogue by dub studios.
