How does it compare in size to the one going in at Uni?
The west side garage is roughly 4000 parking spaces while the Universal parking garage is 2100. So the west side garage is double the size and thats only the first of 2 garages planned for disney springs. The second disney springs parking garage will have approximately 2000 additional parking spaces.

Edit: it is also important to know that the universal parking structure is prefabricated so it goes up faster than a poured in place structure. here's some photo proof(bottom of the page): http://micechat.com/55076-universal-update-diagon-alley-scaffolding-comes-harry-potter-celebration/

That accounts for some of it. What are the perks of NOT using a prefab building?

Once that garage opened and the ramp to enter it from the elevated road, it was the beginning of the end of parking issues there. Once the second one opens, I think they will finally have adequate parking as I don't think the boost in people visiting will increase that much... unless of course, they don't start closing the parks early to only allow after hours guests that pay a lot to stay late.
