I am under the impression that the Boma standard acceptable margin of error in measuring office building floor areas is 2%. is that also the case for multiple family residential high rise buildings?

Yes Stuart, the 2% variance rule applies to all the BOMA Floor Measurement Standards, including the 2010 Mult-Unit Residential Standard.
