San Diego, CA
The Zoological Society retained LLG’s services to develop a comprehensive conceptual plan to increase parking supply, improve access and circulation for all travel modes, reduce potential conflicts and enhance safety. The project involved an assessment of existing conditions in the vicinity at key access locations. LLG evaluated and assessed the pros and cons of several concept plans based on comparisons to existing operating conditions. LLG reviewed entrance/exit capacities, vehicle queue storage, internal circulation, drop-off/pick-up design, handicap parking and bus circulation.

Since 1996, LLG has provided Sea World with expert analysis on access, circulation, and safety enhancements in response to changing annual attendance figures. LLG recently developed proposals for three unique alternative concept plans ranging from low-cost signing and striping modifications to large scale, long-term infrastructure improvements. LLG reviewed entrance/exit capacities, vehicle queue storage, internal circulation, drop-off/pick-up design, handicap parking and bus circulation, then evaluated and assessed the pros and cons of each concept plan based on comparisons with existing operating conditions.
Laguna Beach, CA
LLG studied the potential traffic impacts and circulation needs associated with the proposed Aliso Creek Area Redevelopment Plan project, and investigated the parking needs of the project based on shared parking modeling techniques developed by the Urban Land Institute. Existing site development included a 62-room hotel, Canyon Lodge Restaurant/lounge, function space and a nine-hole golf course. The project applicant proposed redevelopment of the existing Aliso Creek Inn to provide 72 guest rooms with integrated supporting restaurant/lounge, function space, fitness center and spa facilities, a reconfigured 9-hole golf course, 12 Inn Residences and 27 Residence Cottages on the property. The resort component of the Project would be served by the existing Country Club Road connection to South Coast Highway.
LLG developed a shared parking model to guide the phased build out of the Town Center, comprised of 364,000 sqft of office, retail and restaurants, a 3,000-seat cinema, 250-room hotel, 54,000 sqft health club and a multi-family residential development. LLG adapted ratios and time-of-day profiles from nationally published studies and combined them with an extensive Southern California database. Ratios and profiles were also developed for unique categories or sub-categories of land use types. Subsequent studies and on-going work provided updates to prior shared parking analyses, evaluated existing actual parking operational aspects, allocations and interactions between sub-areas (which were not included in previous studies) and developed recommendations on where and how to allocate and manage spaces.
Long Beach, CA
LLG conducted a comprehensive study of traffic circulation, parking characteristics and valet operations for the existing and evolving Pike at Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach, California. The report presented a shared parking study, development of an employee parking plan, evaluation of hotel parking rates and valet provisions, improvement concept plans for the Rainbow Harbor Lot valet station and waiting area, and options to improve the operations of the Pike Parking Structure. The study focused on issue areas identified through LLG’s technical evaluation, as well as City Developers Diversified Realty (DDR) team, parking operator and stakeholder interviews. LLG presented a menu of recommended enhancements and best practices to improve the visitor experience and reputation of The Pike.
LLG prepared an extensive parking study for the City of Pasadena to document and support the establishment of a district-wide parking program. The intent of the study was to review the feasibility of establishing a parking program similar to the existing Old Pasadena district parking program, including the establishment of zoning credit parking spaces as an alternate means of providing parking. LLG determined the adequacy of the current on-street and off-street parking supply within reasonable walking distances to accommodate the potential conversion of existing commercial space to restaurant space, without requiring new construction of additional parking spaces.
Los Angeles, CA
LLG conducted detailed parking accumulation surveys of all on-street and off-street (surface lots and parking structures) parking facilities to document peak parking demands with campus population groups comprised of faculty, students, staff, patients and patient visitors. LLG compared parking inventories with peak parking demands, and reviewed the parking demands associated with each population group. LLG’s report provided recommendations for parking enhancement – including potential parking structure locations – as well as overall layout, design, and access opportunities.
Los Angeles, CA
LLG determined the parking demand forecast associated with USC’s 10,260 seat Galen Center Arena project and compared it to City code requirements. LLG identified all parking facilities within a reasonable walking distance to the arena and documented all surface parking lot and parking structure inventories, including those provided at the multi-level University Parking Center. LLG conducted hourly parking accumulation surveys, reviewed proposed USC Tram operations and headways and documented existing and future ridership levels.
