A common challenge for those seeking residential apartments in downtown Syracuse is parking – how to find a nearby, safe, affordable place to keep your car? Merchants Commons will offer parking places in the building itself, on the street-level floor and one floor below, for tenants. While we’re still working out the details, we expect to be able to offer parking for most (if not all) tenants.
