On May 8, 2013, City Council adopted the updated city-wide Tall Building Design Guidelines.

The Guidelines integrate and build upon previous Council-adopted tall building guidelines and establish a unified set of performance measures for the evaluation of all tall building development applications city-wide.

The Tall Building Design Guidelines update and replace the “Design Criteria for the Review of Tall Building Proposals” (2006), as well as consolidate and substantially replace the “Downtown Tall Buildings Vision and Performance Standards Design Guidelines” (2012).
