The operator of the arena is not here to argue urban redevelopment and reduced parking for transit use. They care more about having enough parking that they don't scare off tickets sales and events from booking the venue understandably so.
I’m not referring to the AAC. I’m referring to buildings like Cirque and The House, which built parking well in excess of zoning requirements.
Not sure where you're getting that for the House.For the House:
Restaurants are parked at 1:100, therefore 21,149 SF would require 211.49>212 spaces
Retail is parked at 1:250, therefore 5,749 SF would require 23 spaces
Residential is parked 1:500, therefore 144,500 SF of residential space requires 289 spaces
Overall parking required (based on city of Dallas general zoning): 524 spaces with a garage that totals 384 spaces....it is well under parked without the shared parking agreements with adjacent lots
The table indicates the parking required by this particular PD. The onsite parking is 4 less than required and none of the other "shared parking" is regulated to make sure just people visiting, living, dining or shopping in the House use it. Actually, the House has 2 separate garages and a portion of the 384 is not regulated and anyone can park in those too.
The Cirque, yea that's over parked and with most of it being inside the gated area of the garage, it's not like it can be re-designated in the future
Props to The 23 though for using the 10% DART reduction and hitting that number exactly.http://www.dallascityattorney.com/51/51TOC.html
