TKH Security has been awarded the Parking Guidance System Contract for Bal Harbour Shops
CHESHIRE, CT – August 26, 2021 – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Bal Harbour Shops’ new garage. Owned by Whitman Family Development, Bal Harbour Shops is a luxury open-air mall that is home to an exquisite collection of designer boutiques and restaurants; with over 100 luxury retailers, it is an internationally renowned shopping destination.
Bal Harbour Shops is currently undergoing a $550-million enhancement plan, including new retail and dining, that will continue to solidify the destination as a global luxury retail icon for decades to come. As part of this expansion, the new parking facility will be equipped with TKH Security’s exclusive camera-based M4 smart-sensor system and will help accommodate the continually increasing volume of visitors flocking to this premier destination.
Given TKH Security’s extensive project experience in South Florida and proven ability to deliver projects on time and schedule, Whitman Family Development chose to install the M4 PGS in Bal Harbour Shops’ new parking facility. This proprietary smart parking system and digital wayfinding signage offer each parker advanced guidance from garage entry to exit, removing stress and uncertainty from the parking journey to curate an enhanced shopping experience.
TKH Security’s digital wayfinding signage indicates where parking is available throughout the garage. Continuously updated with occupancy data collected from the sensors, these signs help parkers make quick decisions. As drivers make their way through the facility, the camera-based smart-sensor system helps parkers navigate the garage. Equipped with bright, color-coded LED light rings, the smart sensors signal which spaces are available and occupied using red and green lights — guaranteeing reduced search and park times and decreased traffic congestion.
“TKH Security (Park Assist) was provided a great opportunity to work with Flash Parking and Ownership to enhance the shopping/guest experience. Bal Harbour Shops has been a staple for luxury shopping in South Florida for many years now, and TKH Security is thankful to be a part of this massive expansion.” Said Thomas Alexander, Regional Account Manager.
This installation will be TKH Security’s sixth major shopping center project in South Florida.
Site work is scheduled to begin in Q4 this year and is slated for completion in Q1 of 2022.
