[3] The floor area ratio shown is exclusive of the bonuses for plazas, arcades, and other amenities which can increase FAR by up to 20 percent.

[6] The lot area requirement and number of rooms per acre shown are exclusive of the bonus for plazas or arcades, which can reduce the lot area requirements up to 17 percent and increase the possible rooms per acre up to 20 percent in this district.

[7] Dwelling units shown for R3 through R10 districts are presented for illustrative purposes only. Districts R3 through R5 are computed using the density measure (minimum number of square feet of lot area required for each dwelling unit); density in R6 through R10 districts is computed by dividing the maximum number of zoning rooms allowed per acre by the minimum number of zoning rooms allowed per dwelling unit (2.5).
