What do the numbers on skyscraper helipads mean?

If you look at aerial photos of skyscrapers (google earth, windows live local, etc) some buildings have a helipad for helicopter access. These helipads have numbers printed on them, usually 10, 11, or 12. What do these numbers mean.... pad size? weight capacity? elevation from ground? Something else?

That's how much weight the helipad can carry (x 1000 pounds)

good to know, never asked myself that question, but random trivia is always nice.
