Apartments with No Parking

Pete Springer/OPB

More and more developers are putting up apartment buildings in Portland with no room for cars to park. There will be plenty of room for bikes, however. Developers and city planners say the lack of car parking will encourage residents to be car-free. But people who live in the neighborhoods where these buildings are going up are concerned that street parking will become even more challenging. 

Do you live in a neighborhood where a new apartment building is being built? Are you concerned about how that will affect parking near where you live? Are you looking for a place to live? Does an apartment building without car parking appeal to you?
