Parking Madness: Detroit vs. Atlanta

parking_madness_2014_2

Yesterday, Chicago’s United Center parking lots bested Denver’s Court Place parking crater in the first match-up of Parking Madness 2014. Today, two heavyweights are facing off: It’s the motor city versus sprawl city in a bare-knuckle brawl of car infrastructure run amok.

Without further ado, here’s the Detroit entry. Warning: This could get ugly.

This picture really needs no further elaboration. Submitter Gerald Fittipaldi says these lots are only used infrequently, during sporting events, and that there’s potential here for mixed-use development.

On to Atlanta:

This area of downtown Atlanta is known as “the Gulch,” which is a pretty good name for a parking crater, come to think of it. The entire site is more or less surrounded by elevated roads. It used to be a rail yard, but is now awaiting a big development project.
