Osceola County commissioners and county staff will host a groundbreaking ceremony on July 25 at 1 p.m. to mark the start of the $15 million Osceola County Courthouse Square parking garage project.
The garage will have 800-plus parking spaces and will be located directly east of the existing Osceola County Administration Building. The precast concrete garage will be eight stories in height.
The garage is designed to accommodate future flex space on the ground floor.
This parking garage will also make available more street parking for surrounding businesses and create a future park spot for SunRail commuters, said Osceola County Chairman Brandon Arrington.
Heery International Inc. is the projects architect/engineer. The civil engineer is Hanson, Walter & Associates Inc., and the construction manager is Manhattan Kraft Construction Inc.
The parking garage construction will employ hundreds of workers in various trades over the course of the project, company officials said.
The groundbreaking will take place at 521 Bryan St., behind the Administration Building.
