A parking garage, located below the new Galaxy Apartments in Silver Spring at 8025 13th Street, is now open to the public. 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. The garage has a total of 368 parking spaces, of which 160 are available for public parking and 208 are set aside for Galaxy residents.
Parking 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.
To view all the public parking options available in Silver Spring, go to the County’s website.
