Term Definition
Emphyteutic lease
Contract for a period of between 18 and 99 years by which the lessor grants the lessee (leaseholder) a real property right (leasehold), subject to mortgage and which cannot be extended by tacit agreement. In terms of parking , such a contract may in particular relate to car parks under construction.
The Exemple de complémentarité : les clients de commerces sont présents massivement le samedi, période où les employés de bureaux sont absents. Mais un parc peut être aussi exploité sur places numérotées réservées (essentiellement dans le cadre de locations). ">trivialization subscribed users a right of entry into a car park, without specifying the parking space they must use: each takes the unoccupied space which agrees. The essential advantage of this mode of operation is to allow a greater number of users to be accommodated, with equal capacity, by playing on the non-coincidence of peaks in parking demand: the spaces left free at a given moment by some can be occupied by others (phenomenon of expansion and complementarity).
Example of complementarity : retail customers are present in large numbers on Saturdays, when office workers are absent. But a park can also be operated on numbered reserved spaces (mainly in the context of rentals).
