The KSIJ Parkade, located on India Street, right behind the mosque, has reached its ninth floor construction. By next month, the entire 10-floor structure will be ready. The finishing will take another year, so the community should be able to utilize these services by early 2014.
The Parkade consists of 8 floors of parking spaces – each floor accommodating approximately 20/22 cars per floor, giving us approximately 160 slots. There will be a basement and the construction committee will decide on the best utilization of that. On the ground floor there are plans for 2 shops, a mega kitchen for the mosque and an elaborate Ghusl Khana. However these are still not definitive plans and are subject to change. The top 2 floors, 9th and 10th floors are dedicated for the Jamaat offices. Designers are still in the planning stages figuring out the best possible layout.
We sent a crew out to get a glimpse of the progress.
