Retail Standard


Here’s some “retail therapy” you can really put to use. BOMA’s Retail Buildings: Standard Methods of Measurement (A​NSI/BOMA Z65.5 – 2010)​ relieves the pressure of measuring and calculating rental rates for retail space in shopping centers by providing a uniform methodology for computing, communicating and comparing the measurement of the gross leasable area in retail buildings.


Key features of the Retail Standard include:

  • An unequivocal direct measure of the physical size of the floor area of a retail building and three measurement methods: Construction Gross Area, Exterior Gross Area, Gross Leasable Area.
  • A consistent, unambiguous measurement of gross leasable area with step-by-step procedures for calculating measurements.
