What is the Parking Ratio for Office Buildings in the City of Austin?
Parking requirements for development in the City of Austin are based upon the proposed specific land use. For an office or administrative activity, the parking requirement is 1 space for every 275 square feet of building area.
Other parking related provisions to be considered are:
- Sites with more than 12 spaces may designate up to 30 percent of the parking for compact vehicles.
- Accessible parking spaces are required per the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).
- Special parking provisions apply for sites zoned Central Business District (CBD), Downtown Mixed Use (DMU), Reductions in Urban Core, and Central Urban Redevelopment (CURE) districts.
- Loading space and bicycle parking spaces may be required.
You can learn more about specific parking reductions on the WGI Blog here.
