Instill lasting value in your parking structure by applying thoughtful, creative, innovative design.

A parking structure is one of the dominant and driving forces in real estate, impacting the success of a commercial development, and significantly affecting the built environment. Not only is it critical that the appropriate parking solution be implemented for the immediate success of any planned development, but a parking structure also affects the future surrounding development and land use for many years into the future. Shifts in demographics and generational priorities, including trends in the live/work/play balance, as well as innovations in technology related to personal transportation, are changing the patterns of growth in our urban areas. Thorough parking planning must recognize several factors, including proper siting, demand analysis, understanding of user needs, and good layouts, in order to provide a successful parking project. This topic will give a step-by-step description of the parking planning process, focusing on best practices, and including a brief overview of those trends that will shape transportation and parking into the near future. This information will help the person who is responsible for managing the development of a garage determine the ultimate form of the garage, inform the operation of the garage, and ensure the garage will be ready to meet the needs of future demand.
