The Robotic Parking System built for Al Jahra Court Complex in Kuwait is one of ten on the global shortlist for the World’s Coolest Car Parks competition for 2018 (#WCCP18).
With 2,314 spaces, the Robotic Parking System at Al Jahra holds the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Automated Parking Facility’.
Martin Mansell, Managing Director of Looking4.com and one of the awards judges, said: “Our top ten demonstrate imagination, innovation and inspiration from architects around the globe, buildings we’d be happy queuing to park our cars in – we look forward to seeing which the public vote as the world’s coolest car park.”
Sophie Killip at DesignCurial and fellow judge, said: “As a design-led website, we were particularly interested in how the architects had used the space in intriguing and clever ways, challenging the traditional view of car parks and transforming the buildings into something exciting.”

It became official in 2018. For the second time a Robotic Parking Systems’ facility was awarded the Guinness World Record for the Largest Automated Parking Facility in the world – 2,314 spaces.
Robotic Parking Systems was contracted for the design, manufacture of the machinery and automation, installation, start up of operations and maintenance for a 2,314 space automated parking facility for the Al Jahra Court Complex in Kuwait. M A Kharafi was the general contractor on this project for Amiri Diwan of Kuwait – the office of the Amir of Kuwait.
This facility was designed as a combination of 684 concrete ramp parking spaces with 2314 automated spaces on top. The Robotic Parking System provides almost 3.5 times the number of parking spaces in approximately the same volume.

In 2000, Gregory W. Nemitz registered land on the asteroid 433 Eros. When NASA landed a probe on a place on the asteroid that he had called ‘Parking Space 29′, Nemitz sent NASA a $20 parking ticket.
