  • Padding - a buffer added around the perimeter of the garage
  • Levels above grade - number of levels of above grade garage
  • Levels below grade - number of levels of below grade garage 
  • Stall width - defines parking stall width
  • Stall depth - defines parking stall depth
  • Stall type - define multiple stall types of varying sizes
  • Max run - maximum length of adjacent parking stalls before a planter/gap is placed
  • Drive aisle width - width of the driveway
  • Drive aisle turn radius - minimum inside turn radius for the driveway

Defining garage location:

Select define under Garage > Massing and click where you want the new location for the garage to be placed.

NOTE: If a property line is defined, a garage may be placed within its bounds given the following criteria.

  1. The current garage parameter set will allow for a garage smaller than the existing size.
  2. The cursor location places the garage in a valid location that will not violate a set back or property line.
  3. The garage will be placed in an area as defined by the arrows and guides. Growth direction will be shown during the placement process.
