Watry Design, Inc. was brought on to the team to assist in the design of 1,714 parking spaces to meet the retail, residential, commercial and entertainment needs of a high-end, dynamic development project in Playa Vista. The famous site was once the home to Howard Hughes' aerospace empire. The Watry Design team performed mixed-use parking demand analysis to right-size the parking and maximize parking efficiency per dollar spent. As a result of the analysis, structured parking was reduced saving Lincoln Properties over $1 million dollars.
In addition, the Watry Design team created separate parking for grocery and drug store users, while still providing convenient parking for shoppers, theatergoers and even those using a nearby city park.
