Residential land is used in which housing predominates, as opposed to industrial and commercial areas.
Housing may vary significantly between, and through, residential areas. These include single-family housing, multi-family residential, or
mobile homes. Zoning for residential use may permit some services or work opportunities or may totally exclude business and industry.
It may permit high density land use or only permit low density uses. Residential zoning usually includes a smaller FAR (floor area ratio)
than business, commercial or industrial/manufacturing zoning. The area may be large or small.
