Interim Surface Parking

Meadowlands Parking Lot

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.

I knew it. I knew it. I knew it. I knew FCR was going to warehouse some of the land they were getting and use it as a big surface parking lot next to the arena. This is truly one of the worst possible things that can happen, from a transpo planning perspective. This is basically a disaster. It should not be allowed. Once established as a part of the arena's transportation "system" that lot is going to be there for a long long time. Wow. This is very bad.

What's the financial incentive for them to do this? The arena is already a money loser. Surface parking seems to be a poor investment for the land. Once the residential buildings are up, who will want to live next door to a giant parking lot?
