Henry Street Parking Decks

Virginia Commonwealth University

Richmond, VA

Donley’s was the Design/Builder for these two 5-level precast parking decks located on VCU’s Monroe Park Campus. The decks encompass approximately 279,400 sq. ft. and provide 761 parking spaces for faculty, staff, and students.



The university accepted the Donley’s team’s alternate proposal which featured side ramps, versus the RFP’s center ramp design. This design offers improved wayfinding for the users of the parking deck while also providing increased capacity over the RFP’s stated minimum of 750 spaces – without a noticeable increase in footprint or square footage.



The parking decks utilize thin-set brick, precast elements, entrance canopies, and punched out window openings to give the façades a more building-like appearance, helping it blend in with the campus’s existing architecture, as well as the adjoining historic neighborhood. The east parking deck is LEED Silver certified.
