Surface parking lots should be placed behind buildings. For sites that are not deep, parking lots can be partially under the building, as shown in the adjacent photograph. Thus, the character of the street is maintained. Small parking decks can also be located behind buildings, and where sites are not deep enough, the retail or mixed-use building can "wrap" or be partially built over the parking structure.
