Here in Raleigh, we have an office/residential combo; it has only 275k sq. ft. of office and 139 condo units (32 floors, 538 ft.). It has 357 spots built-in to the building and 1,050 across the street and includes public parking.

So yes it seems light, and no it doesn't seem like enough if the city also wanted some public parking in the building on top of that which is provided for the offices and residents.
