Parking Dilemma 2011

UCLA Ziman Center Parking Dilemma

The UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate presented a critical panel discussion on the future of high-density parking storage. Experts from around the country will examine new technologies, development options and governmental standards relating to the design, construction and operation of automated parking. These systems use robotic devices to lift, transfer and store vehicles in high-density storage vaults providing efficient parking solutions and enabling developers to conform to a project's conditions of entitlement while reducing the cost to build new or retrofitting existing parking structures. All the while automated parking technologies provide significant "green" options to developers and a safe and secure environment for parking structure users.
