There is nothing more common in land use than the construction and development of office parks. In the 1980s and 1990s, office parks with a sea of surface parking were commonplace. Now in the 2020s under COVID pandemic conditions, “times they are a changing.” The “new normal” has not yet been clearly defined, but it is clear that office development has changed and will continue to evolve over the next several years.
The types of residential developments are as diverse and diversified as the population of every major urban area throughout the United States. They include single family detached homes, townhouses, stacked townhouses, quads, walkup apartments, apartments that require elevators, high-rise residential developments, condominiums, assisted living communities, nursing homes, congregate care communities, etc. Each one of these land uses has different traffic generation and therefore a different impact on the local road system and parking needs and demands.
For the last 30 to 40 years, the parking demand for retail shopping centers centered around the amount of parking spaces, and local zoning laws required 4 to 5 parking spaces per 1,000 square feet for retail development. As a result of the 2020 COVID pandemic, retail development has changed dramatically. E-commerce shopping has grown substantially and delivery of groceries by various types of startups has also resulted in fewer trips to the typically anchored grocery shopping center.
The challenge with mixed-use developments is shared parking.The parking issue becomes critical and shared parking results is a different type of trip generation than what you might expect. It is our job to provide the minimal amount of parking with the maximum amount of comfort for all users within a mixed-use development.
