Shortlist for world’s coolest car park of 2013 announced

Stress Free Airport Parking, a UK meet and greet airport parking service, has revealed the shortlist for this year’s ‘world’s coolest car park', featuring a top ten of unusual car parks in locations ranging from Lyon to Vancouver and designed by prominent architects.

The final list features Herzog & de Meuron's 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, Florida in the United States and Allies & Morrison's Charles Street in Sheffield, United Kingdom, affectionately dubbed the 'cheesegrater' thanks to its resemblance to the kitchen implement.

Also in the top ten are: Michigan Theatre in Detroit (USA), Veranda in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Cordova Parkade in Vancouver (Canada), Car Park Plaza in Cajnovas (Spain), Ballet Valet Parking Garage in Miami (US), Eureka Tower Car Park in Melbourne (Australia), Parc des Celestins in Lyon (France) and Millenium Point in Birmingham (UK).

The results of the competition, which is being run in association with FX magazine, will be announced later this month.
