The Opportunity Cost of Parking Requirements: The Case of Silicon Valley Applied Research Projects

The project examines the opportunity costs of minimum parking requirements, to both housing supply and firm productivity, using Silicon Valley as a case study. Specifically, the project examines how minimum parking requirements: (1) shape the locations and characteristics of new development, (2) distort the location of firms and weaken agglomeration economies, and (3) make driving less expensive.
