Tall building guidelines


Smart growth management principles focus on high-density development - in other words, building up, not out. However, tall building design is uniquely complex and can have substantial effects - both positive and negative - on a community. 

Tall building design requires a thoughtful, well-planned approach that considers, for example, scale, compatibility, sustainability and safety.

For these reasons, we have completed a Tall Building Urban Design Study, setting density limits and providing design guidance for tall building development.
