Re/ Passing the common house to get to parking. My understanding is that the main reason for having a parking lot a little separate from the housing units, is not to encourage trips past or through the common house, but rather to minimize the amount of site taken up by the car (roads, driveways, back alleys, etc.) and use that space instead for common green space, outdoor gathering spaces, walkways etc. If you are in a wheelchair it would be best to get a unit that was close to the parking lot. Some site designs consider that and design 'barrier -free' units adjacent to the parking lot.
