Let's face it- parking in Delhi is no joke. Finding a good, safe spot for your vehicle when you're out shopping is rather difficult these days due to the ever growing number of vehicles on the streets. Sure, you could park on the side of the street, but you may get fined or worse, lose your vehicle. If you're in Green Park however, you won't have to worry about parking issues because there's a new tower coming up and- you guessed it, it's going to be a huge parking lot.

What's the update?

The tower parking in Green Park will be the first of its kind in Delhi. Currently, work for the tower is still underway but one of the two towers has already been built. As for the other one, the core structure has been completed and the entire tower should be complete in a few weeks.

Even if the work is complete in a few weeks, the towers will finally open for the public in October this year. In addition to this, there is also word about a similar parking lot coming up at Lajpat Nagar by December.

Details of Parking Towers

The first of its kind parking lots will indeed bring about a change in the traffic habits of Delhiites. The total area of these parking lots comes to about 900 square meters and each of the towers consists of 16 levels, which can accommodate up to 68 cars each. With the capacity to accomodate a total of 136 vehicles, this parking lot should end all parking woes around Green Park market.

The parking lot in Lajpat Nagar is another one that will be vital in changing the overall feel of the place. According to sources, this one will be massive and can store over 250 vehicles at a time. However, readers must note that there are very few details about the Lajpat Nagar parking lots.
