Floor Area Ratio (FAR)

Floor Area Ratio is a measurement derived from dividing the building area by the total acreage of the lot. FAR limits are employed by local municipalities to regulate the maximum floor area that can be built on a lot. While most municipalities utilize gross building areas, some codes allow for the deduction of mechanical, common, or storage areas.
