North America's Largest Bike Parking Facility Planned for Portland

Portland has a well-earned reputation as a mecca for cyclists. But a new mixed-use development with 657 housing units will set the standard for the U.S. by providing 1,200 bike parking spaces in underground garages.

"The 21-story, three-building apartment project now rising in Portland's Lloyd District will create more long-term bike parking than any other project in the nation, with four huge new storage facilities in four buildings and an on-site bike valet parking service to serve the biggest one," reports Michael Andersen, with Bike Portland.

With young professionals and young families expected to fill the 657 rental housing units, in an area of the city deemed to have the "highest possible cycling potential", some think the project might actually need more spaces.

According to Andersen, "a project architect said Monday that he's not sure the 1,200 bike parking spaces planned will be enough to serve 657 Portland households, so the development team is considering adding even more bike parking before the project, called Hassalo on Eighth, opens in 2015."
