Automated parking facilities

For an automated parking facility, the minimum size of spaces regulated in Sections 25-62 (Size and Location of Spaces) and 36-521 (Size of spaces) shall not apply.

For the purpose of calculating parking spaces in automated parking facilities, each tray upon which a vehicle is stored shall constitute one off-street parking space. However, auxiliary parking trays may be exempted from constituting a parking space where the Commissioner of Buildings determines that such auxiliary parking trays are needed to routinely store and retrieve vehicles for the efficient operation of such automated parking facility.

Within an automated parking facility, each tray upon which a vehicle is stored shall be considered 153 square feet of floor area, except if located in portions of a building exempt from the definition of floor area pursuant to Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS).
