Water Street Parking Facility Opens Friday, November 4 at Noon

Parking Deck will Offer 400 New Free, Public Parking Spaces in Downtown Naperville

The Water Street Parking Facility will open to motorists at noon on Friday, November 4, offering 400 new, free parking spaces in Naperville’s downtown for public use.

Access to the new parking deck will be from the alley behind the deck. Please note there is no access via Water Street. Of the 520 parking spaces contained in the deck, 400 are available for use by the general public; the remaining 120 are leased by the soon-to-open Hotel Indigo for use by its guests. The deck also features public restrooms for the convenience and comfort of deck users.

Please note that with construction continuing on the Water Street District, the rooftop level of the deck and parking spaces on that level will remain closed for the near future. Barricades are in place to keep motorists from using this level. The deck will be part of the parking guidance system viewable on the homepage of the City’s website www.naperville.il.us which lets motorists know how many open spaces are available in the City’s downtown parking decks.

The Water Street District development is a public-private partnership to redevelop the properties along Water Street between Main Street and Webster Street in downtown Naperville. Marquette Property Investments Inc. began construction in April 2015 on the district which will feature several new public amenities, including the parking deck, a reconstructed and improved Riverwalk and a reconstructed Water Street. This district will include a mix of retail shops, restaurants, office space and a Hotel Indigo. The first retail opening will be for Southern Tide on Friday, November 4, with additional openings later this year and into spring 2017.
