Access

When you arrive at the building, goto the center door. To the left is an entry box. Dial 112 or scroll through the names to find Jigsaw. Press the CALL button and a phone will ring in the space. If someone is in the space they will open the door just to the right of the call box. It does not make a traditional buzz so just pull on the handle.

Parking Hints

Drop off passengers in front of INSCAPE. Note that spaces behind our building are paid private spots only. Spots are available from Sam (the proprietor of the building) for $75/month. Your best bet is the Uwajimaya paid parking lot, entrance on 6th Ave S. If shopping in Uwajimaya, purchase $10 for 1 hour free parking (must have your ticket stamped by their cashiers.)

Look for metered street parking on 6th Ave and on South Charles. There is free 2-hour parking along 6th ave.

Parking meter machines accept coins and cards, but not bills. The City is fairly aggressive in ticketing when your meter expires. Street parking is free on Sundays, holidays, and between the hours of 6pm and 8am. Many areas are restricted overnight parking (between 6pm and 8am) to zone permits only.

There are several pay-to-park lots and a parking garage in the area that have varying availability and pricing structures. The one at South Charles and Maynard...
