San Diego International Airport (SAN) Terminal 2 Parking Plaza – San Diego, CA

The Terminal 2 Parking Plaza will span 1 million square feet across three levels. It will increase the net parking in the area by about 1,800 stalls. Of the 3,000 spaces, 1,740 will be covered parking.

The plaza will also include seven glass-back elevators so riders can see out of the cab and people can see in, creating a safer experience for those taking the elevator.

The Parking Plaza is designed to provide a fast, safe, and convenient traveler experience, with easy vehicle circulation and state-of-the-art parking guidance systems that will direct customers quickly to the nearest available open space. The plaza is also environmentally sustainable, with extensive natural lighting, energy-efficient fixtures, and a storm water re-use system that captures and treats rainwater for use in the airport’s Central Utility Plant.

The Parking Plaza project also includes off-site improvements consisting of parking lot reconfigurations, utility relocations, and connection into the existing airport campus.
