Definition of Modified BOMA
When referring to the rules for measuring the square footage of commercial properties, the term “Modified BOMA” usually refers to a method of measuring square feet that the landlord has created, using one of the BOMA standards as a basis. For example, a landlord may feel that the BOMA standard for minimum ceiling height is too restrictive for a property that has a substantial amount of square feet with low-ceiling storage space, so the landlord will modify that part of the BOMA standard.
