Alta’s efforts at MIT included a bike parking inventory and recommendations for short- and long-term bike parking for the University Park area.
Alta worked with Forest City Commercial Group, a private campus developer to improve the bike parking throughout the University Park campus. Alta designed Secure Parking Areas (SPAs) for three garages, designating 80+ outdoor rack locations, and three corrals. Alta was asked to think “Big” to assist in making the marketing of the project successful. Some of the ideas presented included using bicycle themed wall murals within the garages and unique pavement markings to assist with wayfinding to the Secure Parking Areas. As a team, Alta successful implemented the client’s vision to create world-class bicycle parking facilities that complemented the cutting-edge research taking place in the campus.
