Perhaps it is best just to drill down and place cars below grade and order up the cars like so many bag of chips from the automat.

Large fileds of asphalt at the ratio of 1.6 to 1 for parking lot to building area does seem to be urbanism’s biggest problem – all a clampers aside.

1000 sf of retail shops need 5 parking spaces at an average of 325 sf per car (US standards of course)

Restaurants need more parking at 2.6 to 1 and office users less at 1 to 1.

As it takes two incomes to survive most residential units need two parking spaces per unit.

This is of course a recipe for disaster…

Let us hope China does not get rid of their bicycle lanes in favor of more automobile lanes.
