An acquaintance of mine showed me a set of drawings that were furnished by a broker to aid in the sale of a property.   The documents appear to be ‘heavy’ schematics showing a narrow urban site with a commercial building at the front [zero-ft lot lines on the sides].   The building is pretty small with about 2400-sf per floor and it is presented with three floors, retail on first, offices above.  The rear of the lot is shown with a two-level parking area.  As far as I can see there is only one exit from any of the floors, although there is an elevator.  I've attached a clip of the first floor.

It is my understanding that real estate brokers sometimes give prospective buyers drawings of this type [not stamped, not approved, no guarantee] that show what ‘could’ be done on a particular property they are representing  /selling.  

My question is this:   Is there ever a condition when a single exit from an upper floor of a small commercial building would be allowed?   This project happens to be in a city in SoCal in Los Angeles County.  I am thinking that this is simply a sales tool and has no basis in actual construction reality.
