Time Equipment Company modernized the parking system for 2200 Westlake in Seattle.

2200 Westlake is a dynamic project with three buildings in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.  The project includes residential, hotel, and retail, including Whole Foods.  The Collins Woerman firm designed the three buildings: Aria, Azur, and Arte.  The Aria building is an 18-story tower, including the Pan Pacific Hotel and 33 condominiums.  In addition, it is also the building that sits directly above Whole Foods.  Azur is a 12-story tower with 102 homes.  Arte is a 15-story tower with 126 units.  The 2200 Westlake garage opened in 2006 and still had the original equipment installed.

2200 Westlake Garage includes three garage levels with separate and secure parking areas for residential users.  These users can share retail parking stalls for guests and monthly rental spaces.

A critical factor in the selection of Time Equipment Company is TIBA Parking Systems, which can read the barcode receipt from Whole Foods and use this as the validation credential for the parking garage.  Whole Foods requires no additional equipment to process the validation.

This location has three parking lanes and a hotel valet nested area.  The public garage has one dedicated entry, one dedicated exit, and one reversible lane to meet high-demand needs.  Time Equipment Company installed two new TIBA MP-60 entry and two SW-60 exit terminals.  Four Magnetic Gates finished the installation.

Finally, a cloud-based system replaced the on-premises software system that had been installed to provide additional flexibility.  Monthly garage patrons can also use TIBA Mobile Access, allowing for “hands-free” entry and exit.  Users can download the TIBA Mobile Access app from the app store and use their smartphone as their access control credential.  It can use a wireless Bluetooth connection or the QR code that is part of the app.
