Phantom Floor ?


Recommended Posts

The City of San Diego has a zoning ordinance that refers to the "Phantom Floor".  Essentially this is defined as any:

  • Crawl Space Area where grade to floor above exceeds 5'
  • Open Area adjacent to a Mezzanine where the ceiling above is more than 5' high
  • Attic space where the roof surface above is more than 5' above the attic floor.

 

They use this "Phantom Floor" in the calculation of "Gross Floor Area" to determine the FAR.

 

Apparently they think we're going to finish any or all of those spaces and rent them to the Leprechans.:rolleyes:

 

Does anyone else have to deal with this other than in San Diego?

Hi Joe,  do you have a bulletin from the city of San Diego I can refer to?
