Construction Time Chart

NOTE: Construction start time is not available for all buildings. The average construction time is only displayed if there is three or more buildings with construction start and complete data in that year.

 

Gross-to-Net Height

NOTE: Gross-to-Net Height is defined as architectural height minus height of highest occupied floor. Therefore, the Gross-to-Net Height is only calculated for buildings that have both the architectural height and the highest occupied floor height recorded.
