It is a contemporary building.

Driving Directions to Broadway Garage at Harvard:

From Points North, South and the Downtown Boston Area: Take either Storrow Drive or Memorial Drive West (Towards Cambridge/Newton). Exit right at the Harvard Square/Cambridge signed exit onto JFK Street. If you are on Storrow Drive you will be crossing the Anderson Bridge, which spans the Charles River, before you reach JFK Street. If you are traveling on Memorial Drive, you will turn directly onto JFK Street.

From Points West: Take either Storrow Drive or Memorial Drive East (towards Downtown Boston). If you are on Storrow Drive, you must exit right at the Harvard Square/Allston exit, and then take your first left, crossing the Anderson Bridge which spans the Charles River, before you reach JFK Street. If you are on Memorial Drive, exit left at the Harvard Square/Cambridge signed exit onto JFK Street.

Once on JFK Street, travel through three (3) sets of lights (not including the set at the intersection of Memorial Drive and JFK Street). You should pass the Harvard Coop and Nini's Corner Newspaper Stand on your left, and on your right you will see the Harvard Square Out of Town Ticket/Newspaper Stand (the "Kiosk"). At the next set of lights (which are located directly in front of the Johnston Gate, which is the main entrance to Harvard Yard), bear to your right.

A fork in the road will immediately follow this set of lights, and you should bear right at that fork, traveling under the Underpass. As you travel under the Underpass, stay to your left. You will quickly be faced with another fork in the road (a firestation is situated in the middle of the fork). You now bear to your left at this fork, passing the firestation on your right. Take your third right onto Felton St. The Broadway Garage is at the end of Felton St. on your right.
