In the modern multi-story construction, floating column is an unavoidable feature of buildings. Such features are highly undesirable in building built in seismic prone areas. This study highlights the performance of floating column building and compared with normal building under seismic load. In this study, static and dynamic analyses using response spectrum method have been carried out for multi-story building with and without floating columns. Different cases of the building have been studied by varying the location of floating column and increasing the column size. The results showed that story displacement increased by 56.96% in floating column building compared to normal building. Torsional irregularity was found when floating column was introduced unsymmetrically. It was also found that fundamental time period was increasing in floating column building and lateral stiffness was decreasing in floating column building. When the lost cross sectional area due to floating columns were distributed among ground floor columns then it was found that story displacement as well as fundamental time period decreased and lateral stiffness increased.
