Mexico City Executives are Treated to VIP Parking


A


RCOS BOSQUES,A 40-STORY office building, is one of the most prominent skyscrapers in the heart of Mexico City. Nicknamed “El Pantalón”, or “The Trousers”, the


unique glass and steel structure features two paral- lel 36-story towers joined by a four-story support at the top. It is a building that incorporates the best and most advanced construction and amenities. Located in Bosques de las Lomas, the most ele- gant section ofMexico City,Arcos Bosques hous- es many international companies.At the foot of the towers is a large parking facility with 1,000 spaces for office employees and visitors.


Executives at Arcos Bosques were facing a dilemma.


With hundreds of employees and visitors headed in and out of the towers on a daily basis, finding a parking space was often a challenge. Busy executives with large companies to run needed the assurance of having a space available on their arrival. But the steady stream of visitors and employees made that assurance hard to implement.


Mexico’s premiere distributor of automated parking and


access equipment,Automatizacion y TraficoALTO, was called in to find a solution.ALTOhas been a leader in the sales of park- ing and access control since 1994, with offices and clients throughoutMexico. ToALTO experts, the solution was simple – they turned to Designated Parking, Corp. andTheMy Spot 200. The unit is a low cost, self contained, remote controlled bar-


rier that secures a parking space with the click of a button from inside a vehicle. Easily secured into the road or the floor of a parking lot, drivers simply push a button and the barrier in front of their spacemoves down so a vehicle can be parked, or back up again so the space can stay reserved.A total of 30 devices were installed right outside the controlled area of the parking facility. The 30 designated spaces are highly visible and have been rented out to building occupantswhowant their parking space to always be waiting for them, explained RobertoArouesty, Director Gen- eral forALTO. “As you enter and exit the garage, these designat- ed spaces are beckoning motorists, while at the same time restricting access only to those who subscribe for thisVIP serv- ice,” said Designated Parking’s President DoriTeich. The tenants who opted for the devices are thrilled,Arouesty


said.As soon as the barriers were installed, allmotorists entering Arcos Bosques understood the parking restrictions and respected them. So successful were the initial barriers that since that time ALTO has expanded the number ofVIP bays. “Our clients are happy that their most important occupants know their space will be there for them whenever they need to be at their office,” Arouesty said.
