Too Much Parking

Mostly completed new mixed use (retail/apartments) building on Broad St., a main artery in Philly above one of the subway lines. It isn't a perfect development, in large part because it has way too much parking (surface lot). It's 2 blocks from a subway stop. There are 146 units, and 156 spaces for vehicles (resident parking). I don't know whether that was the amount of parking the developer desired, or if the city required it, but I'm going to bet much of the lot remains empty.

We'll see!
