    Circulation on apartment floorplate

    Does any body have a figure for the typical percentage allocated for internal circulation (ie. common space, elevators, etc.) in high rise apartment buildings?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    i assume you want gross vs net square footage??

    most developers will figure 70-75% is rentable square footage. A very effieicent floorplate for highrise appartments can approach 90% rentable though. That rentable square footage is the remaining area after common space, elevators, mechanical shafts etc. lower floors with lobbies, retail etc. would be closer to 70% and floors with just apts would be 80-90.
