Hassalo on Eighth – GBD Architects

The complex will include huge bike storage facilities and an on-site bike valet parking service. Compared to Mexico’s largest facility for bike parking, which holds 800 parking spots, the new development will most probably hold the record in North America.

Portland’s bike-friendly laws enabled the developer and architects to include such a large number of bikes. The city’s building code requires 1.5 bike spots per unit, so the buildings were going to have at least 990 bike parking spaces anyway. Nevertheless, the extra 210 show a commitment to green transportation and highlights just how few buildings in the word have organized similar parking.
