Your city's high-rise zoning plan

Does your city has a high-rise zoning plan?

Yes, Zurich has a highrise zoning plan which can be found on a dedicated webpage: http://www.bzo.stadt-zuerich.ch/zueriplan/bzo.aspx
In short, there are 3 zones:

Zone I: Over 80m is possible under imposed conditions

Zone II: Total height maximal 80m

Zone III: Total height maximal 40m

yes of course!
this are the plans for Zagreb, Croatian capital:

1. first highrise zone is Savska street



This is the image of the street with the highest building in the city - The Black Monolith (160m), the new tower which construction begins in spring 2009. Monolith will probably get a twin brother tower so they'll dominate the savska street cluster.
Of course, there are also announcements of 8 new towers in that street, most of them will have 17 floors, but some will be even higher - probably a tower which will be designed by D. Liebeskinds (30 floors).
In near future, Savska cluster will join the Zagreb Avenue highrise projects (SkyOffice towers. Tower 123 and many more I hope) so that will make an unique highrise zone.

2. second zone is Radnička street.
smaller cluster, but more dense, with quite modern and good looking buildings.
Currently, the highest buiding there is ZagrebTower - 22 floors, but there are some anouncements about 35 floor twin towers.



3. third zone is New Zagreb North West
also a cluster with the highest skyscraper in the city - 45 floors.

Yes. Each area in Singapore comes under specific height and storey controls. This is a result of a combination of aviation safety requirements, as well as certain other site specific requirements.

For instance, technical building heights around the Botanic Gardens or the Presidential Istana have a certain height cap and other design controls. Heights may also be controlled for aesthetic or environmental reasons. Buildings are also regulated on allowable number of floors, which is linked to the plot ratio of the site. This is in turn a means to regulate the urban intensity.

Building Height Plan:

http://www.ura.gov.sg/DMP2008/specia...ing_height.htm

A visit to the URA City Gallery does provide a visual expression of such plans, and more.

Hong Kong has height limits in place, most notably over Kowloon during the Kai Tak airport era, but now moreso to protect the shorelines from masses of highrises, although many seem to have slipped through the cracks. As a result, there is a huge citizen movement now to have more height controls.

This is one of the first really tall skyscrapers to emerge on the Kowloon side. It was right by the water and drew some fierce criticism over these types of buildings along the waterfront.



Now the focus is not on individual buildings, but skyscraper walls (series of tall highrises) along the waterfront areas that block sea breezes from reaching inland, worsening the heat island effect.

Here's an example of what a skyscraper wall in Hong Kong looks like - a sea of 50+ storey buildings clustered together :

I heard that Brasilia does not allow any buildings taller than the National Congress Buildings to be constructed.

That´s true, but only in the city´s pilot plan (which is the area designed by Lucio Costa and is a world heritage by UNESCO since 1987).

In the outskirts there are some plots that can acommodate buildings taller than the Congress.

I don't want any buildings taller than 100 metres constructed in Brasilia. There is a proposal for a 30-story residential tower, but it must be between 300-320 feet high.

No highrises at the Bosphorus or historical center.

Some years ago there was a height limit at Levent middle part, because of Military. But as i know its gone.

Rest is no height limit. Just a limit of m˛.
Mainly its 3*plot m˛.

Valencia, Spain, 810.000 inhabitants (2008), 1.700.000 metro area. The PAI del Grau, the highrises plan in this mediterranean city, has been approved 3 months ago:






The future cluster in Valencia will be in this location, near to the harbor and the City of Arts and Sciences:



Actually, the mini-cluster in Valencia:
