That brings back memories of when I built my second car storage garage back in 2013. Each of them is also a steel building and getting a permit to build them was a real challenge here in California. The city planners were not going to have any steel building in a residential neighborhood, much less two of them. But I have two houses on side by side lots and together they comprise about an acre of land. Each building is about 70' x 48', which is the largest the city ended up allowing. I would have liked larger ones, but only an act of god would have got that though. As it was, I had to give a presentation to the city council of what I was going to do with them and convince them I would fit in the neighborhood. I also had to have them appear the same as the homes up front, with siding or stucco and composition roofs. I guess the photos of some of my cars did the trick, and the guy from the planning department who had to visit the site and give his initial approval really liked an A100 pickup that I had in my yard at the time and wanted to buy it. I found him a better one to consider though. Without that little miracle, none of this would have ever happened. I like the dimensions of your building much better, but I am just grateful for what I ended up with. Here is just one photo of my second one being built.

I have to say that the scenery behind your building is a bit more impressive than mine. I really do need to head southwest again soon, and escape the arctic chill that's moved in here.
I did a lot of planning before I ordered mine, and 60 feet turned out to be the ideal width for car storage. If you want to pack them tight, you can do 8 across no problem, and if you want to do a drive thru center lane, it works out perfect for angled parking on both sides.
