Apartment Buildings Add Bike Parking Lots To Attract Millennials

Apartment Buildings Add Bike Parking Lots To Attract Millennials

Portland's new bicycle storage facility can hold up to 1,200 units.

Seeing how bicycles are noticeably becoming a favorable alternative to cars, it is only logical to build facilities that accommodate more bike parking. The 657-apartment complex currently rising in Portland’s Lloyd District has planned for a massive parking facility that can hold up to 1,200 bikes. As an attempt to target the young urban professional demographic, the architects of the project said each unit will receive one bike parking spot.


While the allotment might seem sensible, it actually does not satisfy the growing needs of urban commuters, especially considering Portland is one of the most cycle-friendly cities in America. Even with the additional 547 spaces underneath the existing Lloyd 700 office tower, the architects said it is more than likely that additional bike parking will eventually be developed.
