Patrons of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk and Himmarshee entertainment district this weekend will notice a new name on Broward County’s Governmental Center parking garage – now called the GG. Mostly known for employee parking, the garage at 151 S.W. Second St., sports a fun new purple and yellow logo and offers competitive rates and many other conveniences, in an effort to increase public parking. GG signage has already been placed inside the garage and exterior signage will be installed later this summer.

The GG offers 1,200 parking spaces on six levels of covered, well-lit and secure parking, with an open rooftop, just across the railroad tracks from some of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s most popular restaurants and nightclubs. As part of a marketing effort, business-sized cards promoting the GG will be distributed to patrons of the entertainment district and in other high traffic areas beginning this weekend. “Meet me at the GG,” “Himmarshee’s Hottest Spot,” and other ads include a QR code that will take a smartphone user to GG’s website where parking rates, directions and other information is provided.

“We hope residents and visitors coming downtown will try parking at the GG,” said Broward County Facilities Director Scott Campbell. “It’s close to nearby businesses, the rates are competitive, and it’s in a safe, well-lit location. Plus, the GG offers advantages over surface lots including paved and covered spaces – really great benefits during the rainy season.”
The GG is next door to the Himmarshee entertainment district and just a short walk away from Riverwalk, Esplanade Park, Museum of Discovery and Science and the Performing Arts Center. In addition to normal hourly and daily rates, there is a flat rate for late night parking, and a tiered flat rate for special event parking, depending upon the size of the event.

“Let’s meet at the GG. Himmarshee’s hottest spot!"
