Rethinking Surface Parking for Pedestrian Friendly Office Development
The automobile has an important role to play in the urban transportation system. As a result, parking is an essential piece of infrastructure in the built environment. Yet, cities are continually challenged to find ways of integrating parking into their fabric that are efficient, compact, attractive and ecologically sensitive. This research aims to not only outline best practice strategies to attract high density parking options that could facilitate office growth, but also provides an overview on how these strategies could be optimally applied in a range of urban contexts (established downtowns, emerging downtowns, office parks and individual developments).
