Interim Surface Parking
The Meadowlands site claims that there is currently parking for 4,000 cars in the immediate arena area, only 200 cars more than the 3,800 proposed for this site.
One change in the Final Scope is the admission that an unspecified amount of “interim surface parking” on the eastern part of the project site will be constructed during Phase I. (P.14). This “use” of the site could be in-place for some time. While the Phase I analysis year is 2010 and Phase II is 2016, schedules for large projects are notorious for being accurate only at the moment they are proposed.
