Purple Rock Scissors Parking / Building Access Info

Here is a Google Maps link to help guide you:

The most affordable parking option is to find a metered spot or to park in one of the City of Orlando public parking garages.

There is also a garage in the building that charges $9 for the first hour and then $3 for each additional hour (up to a $15 daily max). If you decide to park in this garage, park in a non-reserved spot on the 3rd, 6th, or 7th floor and then take the South Tower elevator bank up to the 20th floor.

If you’re coming from street level, make your way to the elevator bank in the South Tower (behind the restaurant KASA) and head up to the 20th floor.

Doors are locked at all times. When you arrive, please ring the doorbell by pushing the blue button on the box located to the left of the door.
