It looks like the "studio" actually has a bedroom, just no door for it. 676 sq. ft is pretty big for a studio.

Most large cities still have a lot of surface parking. Sometimes they're not located in the most obvious places. We still have a number of surface lots in Chicago.

That said, we should try to get rid of as many as we can. They're not a very efficient use of space
