    Nick thank you for the answers to 5 of the 20 questions in the ARE 5.0 Demo Exam Case Study Responses and Rationale. 

    Where might I find the answers for the remaining 15 questions in the ARE 5.0 Demo Exam Case Study Responses and Rationale?

    For Question 1, about height, during my practice exam, I wasn't able to locate where it states that it's zoned DR 3.5. Could someone please point that out? Thanks.

    Hey Lucilla,

    Check the top of page 2 within the Zoning Ordinance under Section 2 - Zoning Classification.

    Apologies if this has been covered somewhere else on here. For the question on required off street parking, shouldn't accessible parking be allowed for as well? My answer was 1250 plus 23 accessible parks per section 1106.

    Hi Ryan, Nick,

    For #3 question, The zoning says 50ft set back is required, and the site is quite large for the required program area. So my question is why correct area for the plaza is confined between the heritage tree and the wetland?  Is it a wrong answer if I pick a bit East of the highlighted area in your post, but not passing the center of the site, so that the plaza can be relatively closer to the University drive than the building?  

    For #4 question,  I don't understand why the loading/staging area is a correct answer than main entry.  Main entry should have direct acess to the plaza which is on the ground level...

    Hey Kyung,

    Good question! It is important to note that the 50' setback is a building setback. Also, the program requires the plaza to connect to University Drive. Since it must connect, you would need to click closer to the street. Clicking near the center of the site would not fulfill the program requirements. 

    Hope this helps!
