1. GROSS (GFA). The total enclosed area of all floors in a building with a clear height of more than five feet, measured to the outside surface of the exterior walls. The term excludes loading docks, porches, stoops, basements, attics, stories below grade plane, parking facilities, driveways, and enclosed loading berths and off-street maneuvering areas.

Above-grade parking facilities should be included in Gross Floor Area, and FARs in zones which frequently include above-grade parking facilities should be increased to match. See https://austinonyourfeet.com/2019/09/09/the-regulations-we-need-to-parktheplinth/
