Research Study into the Mode Split, Trip Generation and Parking Provision for ‘Shoebox’ Retail Use

PI: Wang Zhiwei, David,
Gopinath Menon, Lum Kit Meng, Aghil Rezaei Somarin



A key question to the parking provision policy is whether the prevailing minimum parking requirement for Retail and F&B use should still be made based on the original standard of GFA or the number of retail units to cater for such new “shoebox” retail use.
