CINCINNATI — FC Cincinnati unveiled new renderings for one of two new parking garages to service its new West End stadium and the surrounding area on Tuesday.

Just north of the Major League Soccer team’s new stadium, the five-story "North Garage" on John Street will feature 833 parking spots, according to documents presented to the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners.

The concept designs also show a large “West End” sign affixed to the garage’s northwest corner.

Team leaders presented plans to the Board of Commissioners Tuesday, asking for $2.9 million for the project.

The club and county previously reached an agreement in December to build this garage and another 300-space garage with 100 adjacent surface lot spots at a currently-undisclosed location near Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine.

The North Garage is tentatively slated to open on March 1, 2021.

Ground broke on the team's $200 million West End stadium in December 2018, and it is also set to open in time for the 2021 season.
