Doxa Orange right arrow Driverless cars will spawn office cubes in parking spaces, big box stores downtown

According to Harvard researchers, via the New York Times:

Harvard University researchers note that as much as one-third of the land in some cities is devoted to parking spots. Some city planners expect that the cost of homes will fall as more space will become available in cities [due to driverless vehicles]. If parking on city streets is reduced and other vehicles on roadways become smaller, homes and offices will take up that space. Today’s big-box stores and shopping malls require immense areas for parking, but without those needs, they could move further into cities.
