The Motor Mart parking garage is a well-known eight-story building in downtown Boston. Built in 1929, it was the largest parking structure of its time in the world and included a futuristic double-helix ramp system.

In the twenty-first century, after 76 years of use, the Motor Mart Garage was in need of refurbishing both inside and out. The restoration of the façade involved removing the cladding and replacing it with high quality precast architectural concrete, creating an exact replica of the original Art Deco detailing.
