CI-v4 LTc2: Surrounding density and diverse uses
Project location: Mexico
May 9, 2018
3 thumbs up
We are calculating the surrounding density for our project location, we have buildable land and we are not sure how we should consider this buildable land for the FAR calculation shall it be included in the residential or non residential area?
Thanks in advance

Hi Gabriela, you can include that in either calculation. I would default to considering it as the same type as neighboring/surrounding land. But as long as you are being honest to the best of your knowledge and not obviously mis-representing it to gain more points, either way is fine.

When it comes to satisfying the requirements for Option 1, what does the "total buildable land" take into account? And the "total building area"?
Where do we measure the radius from? In LEED 2009, we measured it from the main entry, but the LEED v4 language is different.
