Skyscrapers will no longer be built in China, 71-storey building was shaken by strong wind
China has banned small towns in the country from building ‘super high-rise buildings’. There will now be a ban on building super high-rise buildings more than 150 meters (492 feet) in cities with a population of less than three million. At the same time, cities with more than this population have been banned from buildings higher than 250 meters. The ban is already in place on buildings higher than 500 meters.

According to a BBC report, China is home to some of the tallest buildings in the world, including the 632-metre-high Shanghai Tower and the 599.1-metre-high Ping An Finance Center. Local reports say there may be a need for super high-rise buildings in congested cities such as Shanghai and Shenzhen, but there is no shortage of land in other cities.

Officers will nap if permission is given for construction
China is cracking down on expensive vanity projects, criticizing local developers for building flashy buildings. According to new rules in China, officials who allow the construction of skyscrapers can be ‘held accountable for life’ for this. It is clear that in the coming time, the officers can also be punished. There are growing concerns in China that local authorities are ignoring safety standards in the race to build high-rise buildings.

71 storey building started shaking due to strong wind
These concerns were heightened a few months after a 56-metre-high 71-storey building in Shenzhen began to shake. Later it was found that the reason for the shaking of the building was a 50 meter tall pole placed on top of it, which starts shaking due to the movement of the wind. The building was closed and the construction of buildings higher than 500 meters was banned across the country. China’s Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development said that local authorities will have to survey the buildings and examine those construction materials and disaster management.
