Porto Alegre Brazil Temple Parking Lot Expansion

The undersized parking lot at the Porto Alegre Brazil Temple is being expanded to the east to provide approximately 40 more spaces, doubling the capacity of the current lot. The homes that once occupied the land were razed in 2015 to make way for the expansion. This is not the first time that post-dedication construction has taken place at the temple site. In 2010, construction began on a four-story patron housing facility that was completed in 2013. It is located at the northeast corner of the temple grounds.
