As with any urban environment, parking is at a premium. Most condos come with one parking space because of this. So last week when I took out a couple from Honolulu who wanted two spaces (which can be found at select lofts like Western Auto, Conover Place, and others when you buy a two-bedroom), it got me thinking of downsizing our cars as well as our homes.
The Smart fortwo's length of only 8ft 10in allows as many as three of the vehicles to park in the space of a standard-length car. Wouldn't it behoove us to consider shrinking our cars to fit the environment vs. forcing the environment to accommodate us.
Perhaps that's why DE Lofts is offering an extra parking space to any one who buys a condo that currently owns a hybrid car.
