You calculate it by dividing the building’s number of spaces by its total square footage in thousands of feet. For instance, take a 40,000 square foot building with a 200 space parking lot. Divide 200 ( spaces ) by 40 (thousand square feet) to find a parking ratio of 5 spaces per 1,000 square feet of space .
Now consider that a common suburban parking requirement for retail space is one parking space for every 250 square feet of floor area. This means, if you are planning a retail building, you have to provide 288 square feet of parking space for every 250 square feet of retail space.
Single occupancy rooms shall be parked at 0.5 spaces per room. Double occupancy rooms shall be parked at 1 space per room, plus 1 per staff member. 1 space for each 1,000 sq.
While the most common office building parking ratio is currently around 4 (spots per 1,000 sq. ft.), many tenants have been asking for ratios of 5 or 6.
The minimum size of a standard parking space shall be nine feet wide and eighteen feet long. Parking spaces within enclosed garages shall have an interior dimension of at least ten feet wide and twenty feet long. The minimum size of a compact parking space shall be eight feet wide and sixteen feet long.
For perpendicular or angled parking spaces , the length is commonly 16 feet to 18 feet. Meanwhile, the standard width is 7.9 feet to 9 feet. For parallel parking spaces , the standard width is 7.9 feet while the standard length is 20 feet.
A more recently used measure is to compute the number ofparking spaces per 1,000 square feet of store space. If we assume that each space takes up a total of 300 square feet of parking lot area (including aisles, landscaping, etc.) then 3.3 cars can be parked for each 1,000 square feet of parking area.
242 parking spaces
Dwellings with 4 or more bedrooms 3 spaces . Dwellings with 3 or less bedrooms 2 spaces .
Parking ratios are calculated by dividing the total rentable square footage of a building by the building’s total number of parking spaces. This provides the amount of rentable square feet per each individual parking space, and is typically expressed as 1 parking space per 200 SF or 5 parking spaces per 1,000 SF.
Your landlord can do whatever he/she wants as long as it is legal and not prohibited by your lease or rental agreement. If you are on a month-to-month rental agreement, and the parking space is part of that contract, your landlord can take away your parking space after giving you a 30 day notice of change of terms.
