The Coming Collision of Office Densification and Parking in Los Angeles

Office tenants, especially in digital technology, continue to fit more people into the same amount of space.  Open floor plans and higher ceilings support this greater density.  In Los Angeles, workers drive to work and parking is limited.  The normal office building has three parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of office space.  All the while, office density is growing to five users per 1,000 square feet and greater.  Companies want to supply parking for their employees.  They don’t want to force their employees to carpool, have to take transit, walk more than very short distances to park, or have to ride a shuttle.  This reality is hard on planners.  It will be a good idea to begin to introduce the Los Angeles creative work force to these alternative methods.  The reality is that brokers and tenants are requesting additional onsite parking more frequently.  Densities are continuing to go up and building owners, brokers, and companies need to deal with issue.
