i believe that here in Los Angeles the lowest you can build is 7ft. from floor to ceiling. but floor to floor i don't know i'm guessing around 8ft. though the normal height for ceilings is 10 to 12ft. for residential and 11 to 15ft. for commercial. funny enough the poorer you are the lower your ceiling typically is. extra height is an extra luxury whether its a single family house or condo.

chicagos aqua's condo tower is under 10ft. which is pretty unusual i didnt expect 10ft ceiling until we were forced to because of the 2000ft federal height limit.

The Intraco I in Warsaw probably has the lowest floor-to-ceiling height of any office tower in the world at a height per floor ratio of 2.74 meters. An office tower should have a height per floor ratio of no less than 3 meters.

A parking garage in the highrise wall of the Presidente Vargas Avenue in Rio de Janeiro(named EGA) has 33 floors and a height of 252 feet (77 metres). That adds to a ratio of 7.63 feet (2.33 metres). All the rest of the buildings in the wall have 23 floors.
