German term or phrase: Geschossflächenzahl (GFZ) vs. Grundflächenzahl (GRZ)
Although I have found a precise German description on abbkuerzungen.de, I don't know how to distinguish between them in English.

GFZ GeschossflächenzahlBei Bebauung: Summe der Geschossflächen dividiert durch Grundfläche

GRZ GrundflächenzahlBei einer Bebauung der Anteil der bebauten Fläche von der Gesamtfläche

For GRZ I find floor area ratio (FAR) but I find the same explanation for GFZ.

I stand corrected. According to the dictionary published by alec_in_France, Geschossflächenzahl (GFZ) – plot ratio (UK), floor to area ratio (US)
Grundflächenzahl (GRZ) – site coverage index

disagree  alec_in_France: GFZ (Geschossflächenzahl) is the BGF (gross external area) of the building as a % (decimal) of site area, i.e. the plot ratio (GB) or floor area ratio. GRZ is the site coverage index - the % of the site (decimal) covered by bldngs: IZ Real Estate Dict.

  -> Thanks. According to your dictionary, GFZ is plot ratio and GRZ is site coverage index.
