Shanghai To Limit Tall Buildings

The congestion of tall buildings in the limited central area has a negative effect in the city, according to the Shanghai Municipal Urban Planning Bureau.

"Guan Zhuangmin, who is also chairman of the congress' Urban Construction and Environmental Protection Committee, said: 'The excessive development of tall buildings in downtown Shanghai worsens the city's image and goes against its long-term goal of becoming a pleasant place in which to both live and work.'
