IF the basement that you are trying to convert into a unit is MORE THAN HALF below grade, then the area of that unit will NOT count against your total Floor Area Ratio. (F.A.R.) If the basement "unit" is more than half ABOVE grade, then the area counts towards the total allowable building area. If you need help performing the Zoning Calculation feel free to contact me.
Call or email me if you have more questions.
