Developer considers condos, vertical parking system near new stadium ramp

Ryan Cos. is now considering building condos and an automated parking system, rarely seen in Middle America, on a previously contentious thin parcel abutting the Viking Stadium parking ramp. Automated parking systems are vertical solutions for small spaces. The system relies on elevators, lifts or conveyor belts to mechanically park vehicles in stalls stacked one top of one another. The narrow strip of land where Ryan is considering using the concept was the source of an unexpected fight for development rights between the Minneapolis-based firm and the Minnesota Vikings last fall. The key site is located between Park and Chicago avenues just across 4th Street from the light-rail stop and kitty-corner from the new Vikings Stadium.
