Interpretation of Height Limitation

A building height shall be measured from the pavement level along the frontage of the building at the highest street level and will include the provision for any setback floors and services, as well as an obligatory 1-metre parapet wall on the exposed façades at the uppermost roof level. The height of the street façade is arrived at by deducting 3.4 metres from the maximum allowable height. Within the maximum height limitation, each floor shall have a minimum clear internal height in accordance with Sanitary Law.
