More About This Title The Dimensions of Parking


(Originally published as hardcover edition in 2010) Just as the fundamental business strategies of other property types have evolved, so have parking technologies, policies, design, and business models. This edition is the result of a collaborative effort between the Urban Land Institute and the National Parking Association. Written by a team of experts, this book covers every aspect of parking. Analyzing the requirements of both free and pay parking lots, this reference reveals the best practices for planning, designing, financing, building, and operating an efficient facility. Parking studies and expert practitioners provide insights and solid how-to information on zoning requirements, automated structures, spacing geometrics, drainage and ventilation systems, security considerations, and more.
