i’am a Vietnamese research, I do not understand, if a GPR of 2.8 and a land size of 100,000 square feet. The GFA is simply 2.8 * 100,000 = 280,000 gross floor area. Inferred site coverage or load coverage approximately 10%, it’s too low, is it absurd?

Why is it that if an area has a plot ratio of 2.8 but the developer only build until 18 storeys instead of 35 storeys?

Great explanation on how plot ratio works! Thanks!

Hi Stanley – understand clearly how we get to the GFA. In theory can the total Strata Area be ~= to the Total GFA? Or do all the facilities also get counted into the GFA and hence there will always be a differential between total Strata Area and GFA ?

Hey Satyaki 🙂 Facilities and common area are considered into the strata area. In theory, yes – strata area can equal to the total GFA. The GFA is the plot ratio multiplied by land size.
