#25361 - Is feature compliance calculated as an average of all regularly occupied spaces combined, or separately for each unit?
This feature should be calculated separately for each floor.
Atriums and skylights do not qualify for Feature 61 Part 1, as the feature is focused on views.
No, since they are not view windows.
#24873 - In an apartment building, does each individual apartment have to meet the 75% requirement or is this an aggregated percentage required for the building as a whole?
Each individual apartment must meet Feature 61 requirements. Every room in the apartment does not need to meet the requirements, but all regularly occupied space, which in multifamily family projects includes bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, work rooms and kitchens, in the aggregate must meet the requirements as written.
#24520 - How should the lease depth area be calculated? Should the project team consider direct line of site when determining lease depth?
The project team should calculate the percentage of the office that is within 7.5 m (25 ft) of any exterior wall with a view window. The occupants' direct line of sight does not need to be considered when calculating.
