'Sea change' in car culture means fewer parking stalls

New 112-unit condo development on Cordova Street 

furnished with just 13 parking spaces

The freshly completed condominium building at 60 West Cordova has 112 living units, but only 13 parking stalls - the lowest amount of parking required for a residential building in the city's recent history.
"A lot of the people buying here weren't interested in any form of vehicle ownership or use," said Michael Braun, sales and marketing manager for Westbank, which developed the building.
The parking situation at the new building reflects what Vancouver city Coun. Geoff Meggs calls a "sea change" in the car culture that has led the city to cut requirements for parking stalls for new buildings.
