HELP!! I think I read a similar thread but can't find it right now. So I will ask again.
Does anyone have any numbers on how many residences it takes to support specific commercial/retail centers?
Does anyone have any numbers on the ratio of "major anchor" tenant space versus smaller inline shops? Major anchor in this particular case could be something along the lines of a: Border's Book; Bed, Bath & Beyond; REI; or similar 30-40,000 sq.ft. tenant.
Any formula on number of pads that will be supported by either population or anchor ratio?
Site specifics for you to ponder as well:
fairly major highway frontage will subsidize small immediate residential population
I have been told to shoot for 300,000 sq.ft. of space with 3 cars per 1,000 sq.ft. (900+/- parking spaces) Damn- that's a lot of freaking parking!
Zman- this is out of Loveland, but close, so if you have any numbers that the City looks for or have projected, I would appreciate it!
