Parkade on 8th

The Parkade at 8th and Filbert glows at night

The Parkade at 8th & Filbert had the distinction of being one of the ugliest and dirtiest buildings in the city for over 50 years. That changed with the space-aged refurb a few years ago. You can’t miss it at night: the place glows. With over 1200 spaces, there’s always an open spot. Location: 801 Filbert St (8th & Filbert). Website.
