Downtown. It's Fun to be Downtown!

Park in Style…

Camera phones galore photograph the entrance to the new structure.

Spa Resort Casino recently cut the ribbon on a beautiful new addition to downtown Palm Springs. The new parking structure is located at the corner of E. Amado Road and N. Calle Encilia.   Spa Resort Casino invites guests to roll up in style at its new state-of-the-art, 850-stall parking structure. Owned by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and operated by Spa Resort Casino, McCarthy Building Company of Newport Beach, Calif., was general contractor on the 12-month build, and the architects were Parking Design Associates of Los Angeles on the parking structure, Delawie on its exterior, and JCI Architecture on the updates to the casino interior. More than 550 construction workers were associated with the project.
