It is common to find many of the parking garages in an urban setting to be partially or completely covered by a plaza deck. The demand for open space creates a need for underground parking facilities. A plaza deck is an architectural feature that will often enhance the appearance and stature of any building or property. In addition to parking, some of the aesthetic and architectural features that may be present in a plaza deck include elements such as (see Figure 13-1):
Landscaping with lawn, shrubs and trees
Water pools and fountains
Sculptures or other similar art exhibits
