Repurposing Excess Parking

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:
July 24, 2020
Article Summary: 

The article discusses how an increasing number of condo communities in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) have an excess of parking space due to fewer households owning vehicles. The Transportation Tomorrow Survey from 2016 shows that 28% of households in Toronto do not have a vehicle, increasing to 55% in the downtown area. The article suggests that wider sidewalks and bicycle lanes can be created without taking space from automobiles, and that bike paths and public transit are convenient and economical alternatives to owning a car. As a result, condo communities with excess parking space may want to consider repurposing it for other uses.
