This robotic parking facility is a designed and built project. It is the first automated parking garage in the Middle East region.
Permits for this stand-alone garage were obtained in 2007. The automated car park was constructed in 2008 and officially opened on August 12th 2009.
We believe that this facility is the world's first and only automated parking garage that had pre-opening performance tests conducted that proved peak traffic handling of more than 250 cars per hour.
The owner, Seven Tides Limited, entered into an operating and maintenance agreement with Robotic Parking Systems who continues its operation to date.
As of 2012, this robotic garage is the only automated car park in the Middle East region that has a continuous operations track record of more than three years.

Comments from Owner and Property Manager
Anne Marie Shein, Senior Property Manager Ibn Battuta Gate stated, "Since the automated car park opened three and a half years ago, you and your staff have provided excellent operations service and ensured that the automated car park is well-maintained and running flawlessly."
Ahmet Oktay Cini, CEO of Asteco Development Management, also representing Seven Tides, described the system as "a key component of the development, a premium valet parking using state of the art technology." He added: "It means your car is safe from break-ins and accidents, or the dents and scratches that are usually the risk of parking in large car parks."
Asteco managing director Andrew Chambers Jones commented, "... parking or retrieval can be completed in less than 160 seconds. It is safe and secure and obviously doesn't expose expensive paint work to the abrasive elements during lengthy office hours."
