    Estimated Jobs per Square Feet

    Are there any quick and dirty references out there of the number of jobs that can be estimated from different land uses? Nothing to specific just "retail" or "office" etc.

    We did some quick and dirty research of our own for some travel demand forecasting work we're doing. We came up with the following (sorry, you'll have to convert to imperial):

    Office/Professional: 1/25m2
    Manufacturing/Trade: 1/43m2
    Retail: 1/116m2

    From the 1999 BOCA code -

    Allowances for Maximum floor area per occupant -

    Business - 100 gross

    That is by code whats allowable, reality of coures will differ, but it might be a good start
