Standard Parking Announces Contract Awards for Yankee Stadium, Washington Square Office Complex, Columbus City Center

Standard Parking Corporation, one of the nation's leading providers of parking management services, announced that it has been awarded contracts to provide its parking management services for the current and future Yankee Stadium in New York, the Washington Square Office Complex in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Columbus City Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Yankee Stadium Parking Facilities

Standard Parking was awarded a multi-year contract by the Bronx Parking Development Company and the New York City Economic Development Corporation to provide parking management and special-event services at the ten existing parking facilities currently serving Yankee Stadium plus three additional garages to be built by 2010 in conjunction with the construction of the new Yankee Stadium. These facilities, comprising 9,500 parking spaces, primarily serve the New York Yankees major league baseball team and represent the largest block of parking capacity anywhere in the City of New York. Standard Parking plans to upgrade all existing facilities and implement state-of-the-art, prepay-to-park technology to enable event customers to purchase parking online in advance. A valet parking option also will be made available at Yankee Stadium events.

"This award underscores Standard Parking's role as a major player in the New York sports and entertainment facilities parking market, building upon our leadership position in this market segment nationwide," said Steven Aiello, Standard Parking's Senior Vice President for Operations in New York. "We look forward to the challenge of offering first-rate parking services to the fans and associates of one of major league baseball's most storied and historic franchises."
