I believe this will be considered as being a four story structure for design of the foundation. Currently Los Angeles City has developed an ordinance call Division 95 which is for the retrofit and new design of hillside structures, pending approval of the city counsel. This has not been offically adopted by the city, but is now being enforced as a building department correction. In this ordinance, which I heard about at a SEAOSC dinner presentation, I believe all lateral forces, at each floor level will have to be transfered by grade beams back up to the highest elevation of the sloping foundation. Cassions at this location will have to resist the total lateral forces on the building. For furthur information, you might contact Mr. Nick Delli Quadri with the Los Angeles City Department of Building and Safety to ask about obtaining a copy of this ordinance.
