19. 19. City Typology & Business Transaction Business Transactional Space (BTS) = area of city sidewalk / (area of city block x Fave) Where Fave = average number of floors in one block A typical 10’ wide sidewalk wrapping around an average 600’ by 250’ city block is to be used as a modular unit for the financial district. With this model, we'd have the area of the sidewalks surrounding this particular block = 17,400 sq ft. Divide 17,400 by 150,000(the area of the block)= 17,400/150,000= 0.116 or 11% taken at ground level only. In a high-density district with at least 20-stories buildings (on the average) we will have 17,400/150,000x20 = 0.0058 (or 0.58 BTS)
