Work has begun to replace the elevator inside the Rankin Avenue Parking Garage located at 12 Rankin Ave. The project started July 30 and is expected to take 100 days to complete. The elevator will be out of service during that time.
While the elevator remains out of order, ADA-accessible parking spaces on the upper levels of the garage will be relocated to the lowest level. The City operates four parking garages downtown.
The City of Asheville operates four parking garages — Biltmore Avenue Garage, Harrah’s Cherokee Center, Rankin Avenue Garage and Wall Street Garage. Each garage is open for public parking 24/7. Garages offer hourly, daily and monthly parking.
In addition, the City offers nine parking lots within the downtown area that offer everything from free public parking to metered hourly parking and monthly parking.
