Reinventing the Parking Industry One Garage at a Time
Parking Vault is a provider of advanced automated storage and retrieval systems for motor vehicles. The company addresses the challenge of vehicle parking in high-population areas with high density, multi-level automated parking systems that minimize parking time and maximize parking volume at a cost to users equivalent to traditional ramp parking structures. Parking Vault’s systems are able to park 168 cars in the same volume of space that a traditional ramp parking structure requires to park 100 cars while saving motorists the time of searching for a place to park. The $18 million Houston Block 97 DST seeks to provide 1031 exchange investors access to strong investment returns in the traditionally low-yielding parking lot real estate asset class.
“Phoenix American as our fund administrator is an ideal strategic partner,” said Cole McDowell, founder of Parking Vault. “Their ability to deliver an exceptional investor experience and the reporting we need enables us to concentrate on sales and asset performance.”
