Secure Bike Parking

At my work, they have a locking cage, with racks to lock bikes inside. Across town, they've taken this to the nth degree:

And yet I think I still see one over on the right side using a U-Lock?

Here's what I get to use at my job....kinda the opposite extreme.

That u-lock is to prevent the bike rack from getting stolen. It's locked to the next best thing to an immovable object, a recumbent.
