"There's got to be a place for those people to go and this was a great solution where it's close enough for those employees to walk on a daily basis, but not so far way that they won't come to it," Brown said.
The entire lot is free to use, but there are still some final touches that need to be made, like concrete-sealing.
"And they'll kind of do that in stages where a few spots maybe, like one row of traffic may be stopped for a day so they can seal that and move on. But those are the little things that come with the lot," said Brown.
Brown also said the extra space will be a big help during events like Blues in the District and Gus Macker.
