In Stockholm there is a height restriction at 6-7 floors. But it's from 1946 and today it practically isn't strictly followed. But it has created a norm in building height, many of the buildings built today are only 6-7 floors.

A lot of cities in Europe have height restriction laws.
I honestly think all development projects must be sustainable and futureproof.

You support the good projects... and oppose the bad.

Major US cities have different restrictions for different areas. There is a blanket FAA nationwide height restriction of 2,000 ft. But under special circumstances, they can waive those restrictions.
