Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
To encourage loft conversions, we exempt residential parking requirements in the CBD zone. In other districts, it is required. I can see the rationale for reductions; I also see problems. Where we have CBD loft apartments, the tenants do not always leave during business hours--compounding downtown parking problems.
