I really do love Rio. The city hasn't skyscrapers, but the mix of old buildings, modern constructions is amazing... Exploring Rio's downtown is fantastic! It's missing some street view photos!!! Of course, there won't be any tall buildings because of the montains, and I think it's fair: in despite of that, Rio has a quite impressive landscape
10!!!

Does Rio have height restrictions in place in certain areas of the city?

Regardless 8/10

Unfortunately yes, Copacabana, Leblon, Recreio dos Bandeirantes, Barra da Tijuca, Botafogo, Urca and several other areas, are prohibited the construction of taller buildings due to natural landscape, and in Downtown Rio, the buildings have no more than 170 m due to the proximity with the airport.

Rio de Janeiro is building a business district, and in the near future may arise highest building (+200 m).

Too many buildings in South America just in white. It's ordinary.

Ah thanks for the info. I can understand why they'd want to keep the beautiful landscapes visible, so its not too bad.

I actually like the color. I'm assuming average temperatures and humidity in Rio are high, so white is a nice choice since it may possibly help in reducing cooling costs.
