Description: DESMAN was retained to traffic and parking planning services for a proposed suburban office park south of Moscow. The development is to consist of three pairs of office buildings of 100,000 square meters supported by six multi-level parking structures totaling approximately 4,000 parking spaces. Access to the site was constrained by a proposed limited access highway (Kaluzhskoye Shosse), a utility corridor and other environmental setbacks that severely limited available area for the buildings and supporting street and parking infrastructure system. Working with the project architects and based on traffic and parking analysis for peak hour flows DESMAN prepared a plan that was responsive to the ultimate development requirements and that could be construction in economical phases. The concept of the street circulation plan considered security requirements that could feature manned or automated check points. Because the peak traffic characteristics of a Russian office park were higher than that for a comparable US facility each parking facilities were designed with two exclusive access points; one serving the lower levels and the other the upper levels of the five-level structures.
