Donley’s was the Design/Builder for the 297-space Sophia Street Parking Deck project in the historic downtown Fredericksburg. The four-level, 97,500-square-foot deck provides parking for the patrons, residents, and visitors to the city. The deck was enabled through the use of the Virginia Public-Private Education Act of 2002, which allows private entities to provide unsolicited proposals for public infrastructure and facilities that benefit the community at large. Donley’s was able to find and acquire land for the project as part of the process. The design team was able to please the City, residents, and merchants of Fredericksburg with a final design resembling an 18th-century warehouse that reflects the history of the neighborhood.
