There are several parking decks and lots within walking distance of JACC. For your convenience, we have given directions to the parking deck at Courtyard City Center, which is connected to our building. If you would like to explore other options, click on the Parking map below.

The Courtyard City Center parking deck is located just East of South Tryon Street on 3rd Street. 3rd Street is one way - you can only drive West to East. If you are heading North, you will need to turn right on to 3rd Street and if you're headed South, you are only able to turn left. Once you turn off of (or cross) South Tryon Street on 3rd, the entrance to the parking deck will be almost immediately on your left, next to the Courtyard City Center. Once parked, go to the 6th Floor of the deck and walk across the roof terrace to the entrance to our building. You will enter on the 5th floor and then take the elevator down to the 1st Floor. Once you exit the elevators, take a left and our offices will be located on your left, just before you reach the escalator. You can also exit the deck on the street level and walk approximately one block North to the front entrance of our building, which will be located on your right.

If this parking deck is full, proceed down 3rd Street, turn LEFT on College Street and park in the BB&T parking deck (almost immediately on the left). Walk around the block to JACC.

There are also several flats where 3rd and 4th Streets intersect with Church, Poplar, and Mint Streets. You must have exact change to park in these lots.

Taking the LYNX Light Rail System

The LYNX is a great and inexpensive way to get to JACC, many of the stations even offer free parking.

When riding the LYNX, get off at the 3rd Street Station and walk west toward College Street (Opposite direction of the Charlotte Transportation Center). Walk 2 blocks from the station and take a right on Tryon Street, our office is on that block between 3rd and 4th.
