The Duke Engergy Center Garage contains approximately 250 spaces which are available for guests of the Duke Energy Center and the Cultural Campus and are located on levels P1 and P2. Parking is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors will pull a time-stamped ticket to enter, and then present the ticket to the exiting pay device. Visitors are required to pay for parking at the posted hourly or daily rates when exiting. The garage accepts cash, debit cards, MasterCard and Visa. Personal checks are not accepted, and receipts are provided for all cash or credit transactions.

To make parking for guests of our tenants as convenient as possible, we offer the following programs:

The Chain-Reserved Section provides space for tenants' clients and visitors when the garage is in a "Lot Full" mode. The "Lot Full" sign will be activated when the visitor parking spaces are full. Several spaces will be held off the market by a chain barricade until the garage nears capacity and requires this remaining block of parking. The chained-off spaces will be made available specifically to tenants' guests during the times in which garage vacancy is very limited and is absolutely necessary. We ask that tenants inform their guests that the garage may be in a "Lot Full" status prior to arrival. During these periods, the visitor will need to pull forward into the drive lane and seek attendant assistance through the intercom located near the ticket dispenser. The attendant will instruct your guests to the first available space held off the market, or to the chain-reserved area.

The Client Validation Program enables tenants of Duke Energy Center to pre-pay for parking for their visitors or guests. In order to participate in this program, the tenant must purchase parking coupons (chaser tickets) in advance from the Parking Office. For more information and instruction, please contact the Management Office at 704-330-2501.
