- ‘The project has a total gross floor area of more than 36,000 sq ft with a plot ratio of 0.5.’
- ‘With a plot ratio of about seven times, the 270,000 sq ft site could generate a total gross floor area of about 1.9 million sq ft.’
- ‘With a plot ratio of nine, the site could generate a total gross floor area of about 341,000 square feet.’
- ‘A lower plot ratio means the floor area the developer can build at the site will be reduced.’
