Parking Q&A

  • The vehicle entrance is on Olive Street, between 5th and 6th
  • Pedestrian entrances are via elevators in the Dean’s courtyard (accesses B1 only) and the Administration Building lobby (accesses B1 and B2).
  • Pedestrian entrances are on a schedule to allow for returning to the garage after a meeting on campus or visiting a restaurant in the neighborhood.
    • Pedestrian gate and lobby schedule are:
      • Monday – Friday 8a-10p
      • Saturday & Sunday 6a-10p
  • Vehicle gate scheduled hours are:
    • Monday to Friday 7:00 am to 7:30 pm
    • Saturday and Sunday 6:00 am to 7:30 pm
    • Extended entry hours for special events & special occasions such as the Easter Vigil and Midnight Mass will be specific to the event.
  • The vehicle gate hours secure the garage earlier in the evening than the pedestrian access.
  • Please note: the vehicle gate has had ongoing programming challenges since we’ve moved into the building that are still being resolved by Greystar’s team. At times it closes early at 6pm and we are working very hard to fix this glitch.
  • No. If the vehicle gate is down when you are exiting just pull your car up closer to the gate and it will always open automatically.
  • PEDESTRIANS: Do not use the vehicle ramp to enter or exit the garage. It is dangerous and not at an angle/grade to allow for safe pedestrian travel.
  • PEDESTRIANS: If you are “stuck” in the garage, simply take the Cathedral elevators up to the first floor and you can always exit the Dean’s courtyard via the gates onto 5th and 6th
  • Parking is free all day on Sundays; however, the vehicle gate closes at 7:30 pm unless there is a late evening event.
  • Yes and no
    • Yes you pay, if you wish to park in the underground garage. You will pay the small fee for parking.
    • No you don’t pay, if your committee or event organizer has instructed you otherwise because they have made special arrangements.
    • No you don’t pay, if you’ve got a scheduled meeting with a staff member. You can bring your license plate number to the receptionist desk on the 2nd floor for a 2 hour exemption. 
    • No you don’t pay, if you are a Ministry Leader (someone who is in charge of volunteers and a ministry with more frequent on-campus parking needs): complimentary parking has already been arranged.
    • Please connect with Kathleen Burgess directly if there are further questions on complimentary parking.
  • Yes and No:
    • Yes you pay for general use of the garage for events outside of office hours unless prior special arrangements having been made. You will have been advised if those arrangements exist.
    • No you don’t pay: Ministries that require lengthy and frequent use of the garage (like Altar Guild and the Choir) have already been identified and complimentary parking has already been arranged.
    • If you feel you have not received accommodations that you and your group need, please contact Kathleen Burgess.
  • No you don’t pay if you’ve got a scheduled meeting with a staff member. You can bring your license plate number to the receptionist desk on the 2nd floor for a 2 hour exemption.
  • Download the LAZ PARKING app to your smart phone and follow instructions to set up your account.
  • When you park, look for a LAZ sign with a QR code, located by the elevators and in the elevator lobby,point your phone’s camera at it and click on the link.
  • The fees for parking are $5.00 for two hours and $10 for the all day or overnight rate. 
  • There is a service fee of $0.35 and $0.45 respectively for the mobile transaction. 
  • Under certain circumstances, staff can waive the fee if you receive a ticket from LAZ.
  • For complimentary parking information, see above.

      • Monday – Friday 8a-10p
      • Saturday & Sunday 6a-10p
  • Currently yes. We have not made special arrangements for these events during the week, yet. 
  • You can exit the parking lot and access your vehicle up to 10pm via the pedestrian gates and lobby elevators.
  • Overnight parking is an option for the 525 Olive Tower apartment residents to utilize for their overnight guests and to further expand our revenue opportunities.
  • Currently we’re providing 24/7 comps for those on the “list” of ministry leaders and staff, so no payment is required.
  • Those with 2 hour comps will have to pay after the 2 hours, or make arrangements for an additional comp via the receptionist desk in the offices and are not on the permanent ministry leader or staff “list”.
  • LAZ monitors the parking lot with special License Plate Scanning Technology. They are able to scan your plate and know if you haven’t paid, not only at our lot, but at other LAZ parking lots (!).  They will issue a $60 ticket if you have failed to pay. 
  • If you’ve received a ticket during our startup phase/recently, please bring it to Kathleen Burgess’ attention for assistance in resolving it.
  • Yes, but they will have to pay unless it’s a Sunday.
  • No, you must take the elevator. The stairwells are fire exits only.
  • Paul’s Cathedral’s operating budget will receive all the funds over and above what we pay to LAZ for their management fees.
  • Remember, Chapter has called for us to bring in additional revenue streams via our buildings and grounds assets. This includes developing our room and event rentals and monetizing the parking garage.
