PARKING, SERVICE, AND

PARKING, SERVICE, AND LOADING GUIDELINES APPLICABILITY Parking, Service, and Loading are necessary components for the functionality of the project. The careful integration of these components will enhance the visitor experience. The intent of this section of the guidelines is to reinforce the design integrity of the environment by ensuring that parking, service, and loading functions will be incorporated into the project in a way that will minimize detrimental impact on this visitor experience. PARKING, SERVICE, AND LOADING The goal of the following guidelines are to minimize the negative aesthetic impacts parking and loading may have on the pedestrian experience and the overall image of the project: • Elements of the parking areas visible to the public realm should have architectural character that is commensurate with adjacent program use and coordinated with overall architectural expression. • A good proportion of the parking structures will be wrapped with active uses. The areas that are not wrapped with active uses shall have facades that will integrate materials and details that are complimentary to the adjacent buildings. • Parking garage entrances and exits should be located within designated areas. • Any vents or mechanicals for parking garages or loading areas that are visible on building facades should be screened or well-integrated into the building architecture in terms of its materials, color, architectural expressions, etc, with efforts to limit the visibility of large areas of unbroken grilles. • Pedestrain-frienldy service entrances shall be provided where loading entrances cross pedestrian circulation routes. Visual cues such as continuity of pedestrian paving materials shall be used to prioritize pedestrain circulation movements. Traffic calming shall be employed as appropriate to improve pedestrian safety. Screening at mechanical equipment Metal screen at parking GOALS Buildings cannot function without adequate parking and loading services. Usually thought as negative impacts to pedestrian environment, the following guidelines are to ensure efficient parking and service areas while minimizing interference with pedestrian. Integration of loading/service Green screen at parking • Parking shall be located below the landscaped deck level. The parking structure should provide residences, employees and visitors easy access. • Service and loading should be designed to meet functional requirements without compromising pedestrian access or aesthetics. • Parking, service and loading should be screened from public realm as indicated on parking, services, and loading diagram. • Parking entries should be inviting and welcoming. • Any vents or mechanical equipment for parking garages visible on building facades should be screened or well-integrated into the building architecture in terms of materials, color, architectural expressions, etc, with efforts to limit the visual impact of large areas of continuous grilles.
