    So the Central Park Station “TOD” will have 1100 sq ft of parking for every 1000 sq ft of actual development? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0a39c36d9d9187fe4fc3ffc82b23f0c06e7660637d18ed02da3e1e4e487544c5.jpg

      Did you back into that number off of the stated ratios in the DBJ article?

      • John Riecke

        Yeah, 3.5 spaces per 1000 sq ft, and the attached diagram showing 650 sq ft for two parking spaces. Round numbers but still way too high.

          I was wondering if perhaps the parking ratio might only apply to the office space which sort of rings a bell. For that site it is still ridiculously high but I can see the developer – investor mentality. Little sleuthing and the best piece I found was at Metro Denver EDC but they state the same ratio for the whole development.

          Pretty sad.

          Hold the phone. I see where KTGY did the master plan. http://ktgy.com/work/central-park-station-tod/
          They list 388 parking spaces for 258 apartments (DBJ states 300 units) and 300 spaces for the office building with 190.000 SF. Not sure if those are accurate but they’re lot less than what is stated in news articles.

          • John Riecke

            With those numbers and assuming 800 sq ft apartments (average) we get ~200,000-230,000 sq ft for parking and ~400,000 sq ft for people.
