NEW PARKING FOR SOUTH SILVER SPRING NOW OPEN!

NEW PARKING FOR SOUTH SILVER SPRING NOW OPEN!

A parking garage, located below the new Galaxy Apartments in Silver Spring, at 8025 13th St., brings a total of 368 parking spaces to the area -- 160 of which are available for public parking, while 208 are set aside for Galaxy residents. The garage is part of a public-private partnership that created a 195-unit, five-story apartment building with 82 affordable units and an underground parking garage on the site of a former County surface parking lot.  Rates at the new garage, known as Garage 16, will be 75 cents an hour for short-term parking of four hours or less and 60 cents an hour for long-term parking of more than four hours. Parkers also have the option of using a Parking Convenience Sticker (allowing unlimited parking on any all day meter in Silver Spring), which costs $113 a month, or a Daily Parking Permit for $7.20 a day.
