Maximize use of metropolitan ground for smart mobility concepts

Mixed Use facilities chose DESIGNA parking systems

When your mixed-use parking project blends a combination of residential, office, retail, cultural or institutional uses with parking, those varied functions must be physically and functionally integrated. These parking facilities have become increasingly common, especially in downtown and urban areas. Mixed-use parking projects can range from the simple to the complex. Many of these mixed-use applications have retail located on the ground floor, which can significantly change the design required by a typical stand-alone garage. The varied usage of mixed-use buildings must incorporate a modern management of parking requirements

Residential, retail or entertainment purposes all have different expectations of parking services. Therefore it’s a wise idea to integrate a modern Parking Management System in the mixed-use development of a new real estate project from the very beginning. As land becomes scarcer in urban areas, cities and public parking authorities are working with private parking entities to develop mixed-use projects that may include multiple owners. In a complex mixed-use project, allocation of costs between multiple owners can be challenging.
