For public safety, China has prohibited the construction of the world's highest skyscrapers.

world's highest skyscrapers.

 Following increasing public health and safety issues regarding the quality of some projects, China has prohibited the construction of skyscrapers taller than 500 meters (1,640 feet). The National Development and Reform Commission, Beijing's top economic planning agency, stated in a notice Tuesday, according to Bloomberg. Buildings taller than 100 meters must be designed in accordance with firefighting capabilities and the extent of the town in which they will be constructed.

 In addition, the country's top economic planner has ordered local governments to tightly prohibit the building of skyscrapers taller than 250 meters, citing quality issues and public safety risks in some developments due to a lack of adequate monitoring.

“It’s primarily for safety,” said Qiao Shitong, an associate law professor at the University of Hong Kong told Bloomberg, adding that skyscrapers “are more like signature projects for mayors and not necessarily efficient,” Only 10 buildings in the world are over 500 meters and half of them are located in mainland China.

The Shenzhen Electronics Group Plaza, one of China's highest skyscrapers, was abandoned on May 18 as it started to tremble. The massive tower shook on its base as dozens of scared people rushed helter-skelter anticipating a collapse, according to videos recorded by onlookers and published by local media on Weibo.
