    Re: clarification

    The building is 60 feet long.

    In most cases, 'feet' is the plural of 'foot'.

    However, colloquially, many native English speakers refer to a person's height as 'five foot eleven'.

    Please note that a better title would have been feet/foot.

    Note that we say "The building is 60 foot/feet long" or "The building is 60 foot/feet in length".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
