Love it! That’s the best I’ve ever seen.
Knowing how WASPy Portland is, though, most residents in that complex own cars and pay for monthly parking, but take the streetcar to avoid having to walk anywhere and complain that the buses and MAX interfere with their ability to drive a car in the city…
I would guess that this development would have had a lot more parking if it weren’t in a transit-rich area. Some parking is always necessary, but having transit nearby can really cut down on the amount (as long as cities don’t stupidly require minimum amounts of parking).
Just look at the apartments out in Beaverton or Vancouver. The parking lots take up as much land as the buildings.
Good for people who can pay 2x the normal rate I guess.
