* Building Heights - As a general rule, figure 10 feet per story. Most new construction has eight-foot-high ceilings. Add about two feet for a combination of ceiling and floor structure. In commercial buildings, the first floor is often higher. Therefore, a 65-foot-tall building would rise approximately 6 stories.

** FAR (Floor Area Ratio) - is the ratio of the total floor area of buildings on a certain location to the size of the land of that location. For example, a FAR of 2 would indicate that the total floor area of a building is two times the gross area of the site on which it is constructed.
