Hi, I'm new to Cyburbia. Looks like a good group of folks.
I am looking at a vacant office building conversion to a parking structure. The area has numerous vacant historic buildings but no parking, so providing parking would allow the renovation and re-tenanting of these local treasures.
The building is 5 floors plus a basement. Each floor is approximately 12,600sf. The building dimmensions are 90' x 140' with 3 rows of 6 internal columns spaced roughly 20' apart. The plan is to add one concrete ramp per floor to allow two way traffic.
Since we are in the concept stage, it is too early to hire a parking consultant.
My main questions are:
1) how do I find an efficient layout?
2) if the neighboring building becomes a 100 room hotel, how many spaces might they need?
Any ideas you have would be appreciated.
Welcome to Cyburbia! Since your thread isn't really an "Introduce Yourself" thread, but one about design issues, I've moved it to this more appropriate forum. Thanks and carry on!
