Parking is validated for Metropolitan Park East (MPE) and Metropolitan Park West (MPW) garages only. Neither garage can accommodate vehicles over 6’ 2”. We suggest parking in the Metropolitan Park East garage for easy navigation to the clinic, which is in this building.

Pull into Metropolitan Park East driveway (off of Minor Avenue), and drive up to the gray Flash Parking ticket machine located next to the garage attendant’s booth. On the touch screen, select “GET A TICKET.” Pull the parking ticket from the dispensing slot. Bring it with you to the research clinic for validation at the reception desk.

As you drive into the garage, please do not park on level A. Continue driving down to level B or C.  Also, please do not park in a 2-hour space. Please follow these instructions so you don’t incur any parking penalties. Your cooperation is much appreciated!

To get to the research clinic from the MPE Garage:

  1. Once parked, bring your parking ticket with you. Follow the signs to the Garage Elevator Lobby.
  2. Summon elevator car by pressing the button located between the 2 elevators.
  3. Once in the elevator, select “L” to go to the MPE building lobby.
  4. After exiting the elevator car, proceed toward the bank of elevators ahead of you and to the RIGHT.
  5. On any of the electronic touch screens, touch the number 13 to summon an elevator to take you to floor 13. IMPORTANT: The touchscreen will then show you which one of the elevator cars is coming for you. Do not get in a different elevator — it may not be going to floor 13.
  6. You can no longer select a floor once you are inside the elevator car!
  7. Once you’ve arrived on floor 13, follow the signs to the research clinic in Suite 1370.

To get to the research clinic from the MPE building lobby:

  1. Enter the lobby through either the side doors or the front revolving door (near Starbucks).
  2. Walk toward the front of the security/information desk and look toward the rear of the lobby (opposite the windows), where you will see 2 separate banks of elevators ahead of you. Approach the LEFT bank of elevators and follow steps 5 and 6 above.
