Let s Let’s consider an example:

This parcel is zoned… zoned CR-4.0 C 3 0 R-3.5 H-50. CR 4 0 | C-3.0 | R 3 5 | H 50

That means this parcel could develop several ways:
Under the “standard method” standard method the th maximum.density i only 0.5 FAR i d it is l 05

If developed 100% residential, only 3.5 FAR can be reached.

If d developed 100% non-residential, only 3.0 FAR can be reached l d id ti l l 30 b h d

If developed as mixed-use density can reach 4 0 FAR. mixed use 4.0 FAR This i Thi gives developers an incentive to mix uses. d l i ti t i
