In Park Slope, the FAR, as of 2003, is 2.01.I am trying to determine if a house which has a lot size of 2,250 sq.ft. (hence a FAR of 4,522.5 sq.ft.)and an existing house of 5,400 sq.ft. (including finished garden level) can build an additional floor. It looks to me as though it has already exceeded the FAR (but is undoubtedly grandfathered in) so it wouldn't be allowed to add another floor. Is this right? The house is a total of 4 floors including the garden level.
Without knowing nothing about it, it sounds like it is existing non-complying and so since it is over already you cannot add more.

It would include a basement level not a cellar though unless it is used for a legal habitable space.

"In Park Slope, the FAR, as of 2003, is 2.01"
I'm confused, so i'll state the obvious. There are also R7B (far 3.0) and other zoning in Park Slope. Have you checked the most recent zoning map? http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/ht...
