What’s the preliminary potential square footage for building a home?
Potential for Square Footage Per pre-application planning meeting with the City of Boulder:
- Lot Size: 428,647 sf Per the City, you are allowed a Presumptive size maximum*** of 3,218 sf
- *** Presumptive Size Maximum is the maximum square footage allowed above grade
- Per the City, you are allowed Max Building Coverage* of 3,218 sq. ft.
- *Maximum Building Coverage is the square footage allowed to cover the site. For example, a 1-story house is the same as a 2-story house because they equal the same amount of site coverage. *Maximum Floor Area basically means the amount of above-grade floor area allowed on the site. Converse to Max Building Coverage seen above, each floor above grade (basements don’t count unless they are walk-outs) is counted in calculating Max Floor Area. For example, a 2-story home with each floor equally 1000 sf would add up to 2000 sf of floor area.
