Jeff: You are not alone. The drift limitations are stated as 2 or 2.5% of story height (1630.10.2). DeltaM is .7 R DeltaS When doing an ASD Design you still must still use the USD load combinations in 1612.2 to calc DeltaS. That is because Delta M is the maximum Inelastic Displacement. This should not be a big thing. Delta M will be about 5 times what you expected under the 1994 UBC but note that the allowable deflection is also 5 times higher. Now for the real problem in San Francisco. See 1633.2.11. If you allow DeltaM to be 2.5%, you are looking at a 9 inch set back from the property line for a 30 foot tall building. That would be giving up 18 inches on a 25 foot lot. If there is a building on the adjoining lot(s) at the property line, the root mean square separation would be almost 13 inches. You need to stiffen up your structure to reduce DeltaM. John Rose at APA told me that 2:1 shear plywood shear walls with nailed or lag screwed HDs should yield about 1% delta at table allowable loads. 1%, then might be a good compromise delta limit.
