Why do you calculate area? Depends on who you ask. Gross Square Footage vs. Gross Leasable Area vs. Gross Floor Area vs. Usable Area are all slightly different and have different, yet very similar applications. Ultimately, area gets calculated for Building and Zoning Code requirements and limits. Area also needs to be calculated to determine the feasibility of projects from a financial standpoint. Honing in your proforma to allow the building to become as efficient as possible allows everyone to win. Lastly, from a brokerage standpoint, areas are needed, or need to be verified, in order to accurately highlight leased space.
