River Rock Casino Hotel & Parkade
Built to provide parking for the River Rock Casino and the Bridgeport Canada Line station and bus loop, the River Rock Casino Hotel and Parkade is a mixed-use structure with a 1,600-car parking structure, 190 room hotel, and retail space including a restaurant.
The parking garage is connected to the Canada Line station and the River Rock Casino Resort with two pedestrian bridges – a moving sidewalk was installed for the pedestrian bridge for the Casino Resort building.
The structure is a strategic-mix of pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete.
Cast-in-place concrete was limited to areas under the footprint of the hotel where interior columns were required to support the hotel.
The remaining areas benefited from the rapid construction time inherent in pre-cast concrete.This method allowed for sections of the parkade to be open before the construction of the hotel components were completed.
Economic conditions required the completion of the hotel to be moved into a second phase that was undertaken two years after the completion of the parkade.
