The Japanese love their motorcycles, and property is at an ultra premium, so a huge percentage of the population lives in apartments.
The small-space restrictions considered, it only makes sense to have an apartment designed for motorcyclists only. The JaThe NE complex consists of eight apartment units, all of which have space for indoor storage, accessible from the street.
Implications - Metropolitans are large in population but are also small in scale. The amount of cars, traffic lights and skyscrapers that take up space often leaves little room for vehicles. If more storage spaces such as the JaThe NE complex gets built, it'll help make cities a lot more spacious and perhaps convince individuals purchase more cars.
