Parking Ratio or Index

    The intent of this ratio is to provide a uniform method of expressing the amount of parking that is available or required at a given building. Dividing the total rentable square footage of a building by the total number of parking spaces for the building provides the amount of rentable square feet per each individual parking space (expressed as 1/xxx or 1 per xxx). Dividing 1000 by the previous result provides the ratio of parking spaces available per each 1000 rentable square feet (expressed as x per 1000).
