Who /small city/ here?

At what point does a city move from parking lots to parking structures?

Stavanger is less nice, but it can be excused as it was a rather poor city after the viking ages until modern times. At least it has a lot of spires.

desu I don't know why people hate it

it's not but just it should be taller/bigger but I realise that this is Scandinavia after all
>>
>>53049466
I think the height is alright, as it is right by the waterfront after all. Don't want to have tall wall of towers that blocks out everything else. And it's also a start, as it gradually makes people more and more used to heights. The real towers should come behind, next to these two lonely ones.

>>53049114
It's so odd. If you have a line of important buildings, they're supposed to be on the same street. Each building in that cluster has 2 streets on either side.

If parking demand requires extention but land purchasing more costly than construction works and ongoing maintance minus operational income.

In your case - not in your lifetime.

No.
They are a cluster of buildings. But if you need to get from one end to the other, you have quite a long walk. Compare that to, say, The City in London. They are bunched together and thus quicker to get to.

I don't think you quite understand.
It's barely 250 metres from start to end, with everything behind being trains tracks, and the end of a freeway being to the right. Coupled with the fact that it's a tiny space overall, and the soil in front being weaker, I don't think it would be possible, practical or beneficial to build a City of London type cluster there, especially when grouped with the fact that the 12 towers are barely 50% of the full development. If you had been there, you would also realize how incredibly easy it is to navigate and get from A to B, not to mention interesting, as the gaps between the buildings are all quite unique (and you can literally walk straight through some of the towers).

Yeah, but I don't mind. It makes it all look complete. Putting another batch of high-rises there would look silly, and too imposing. Even that one high-rise on the artificial platform in front there looks silly.

Reminds me a bit of a town here called Arendal, but with fancier buildings.
And I'm not sure. I like both "rural" and city life, but maybe the latter, in a central area preferably. I enjoy the feeling of there being life around me, and I also enjoy being in walking distance to all my needs.

I visited Geneva. And despite all these institutions, I didn't really feel this global vibe. It looked kind of I dont know, a bit empty? Probably it's not large enough for me. But it's a beautiful and clean city for sure.
