Parking Demand for Residential Apartment Buildings in Jordan

A few decades ago, the majority of Jordanians were living in separate houses. However, with the fast-growing population, Jordanian main cities became congested and the majority of their residents had no choice but to accept living in multistory apartment buildings. This has led to residential areas with high population densities that are suffering from traffic and parking congestion. This research was aimed at developing models for predicting the weekday residential building parking demand and identifying the significant influencing factors from the collected data. Data collected included the building age (years), number of floors, number of apartments, gross floor area (square meters), average apartment floor area (square meters), average apartment income, average current apartment price, average apartment car ownership (number of cars owned by the residents of the building/number of apartments in the building), and building location class (suburban, urban non-central business district (CBD), urban inner CBD, and urban outer CBD).
