Reducing Parking Requirements for Huge, Regional Malls
"Fairfax County is looking to reduce its parking requirements for its largest malls — including Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria," reports Catherine Douglas Moran.
"A review of the parking rates and demand at large regional malls by consulting firm Nelson/Nygaard found that less than 65% of the available spaces were occupied during peak times, according to county documents."
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is set to vote today, October 15, 2019, on a proposal that would lower the parking spaces required of large commercial centers from four to 2.5 or three spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross floor area.
