I wish the same policy can be implemented in our country Malaysia as well... In our capital city Kuala Lumpur, there are 4 skyscrapers over 400m, the KL118 is also expected 2nd tallest in the world when completed. it is absurd to have so many skyscrapers over 400m in a city of just 1.5 million people, and our country population is just 32mil. Our government and politicians just want to build these tall buildings for the glamour and money undertable. however our city infrastructure is pretty terrible, a lot of old buildings with bad maintenance, terrible city planning, and just recently we had one of the worst flood in the region, and many houses were flooded.

@Zebimicio So obviously it is the lack of proper management is the issue, not the lack of tall buildings or fancy buildings. Places like Chow Kit can be in a better state if the city hall carry out their duty properly (like in Singapore or the Netherlands), not just when there's are a mega project coming. And no, I don't hate skyscrapers, like I said, only build them when it is actually needed and there is demand for it. Revitalization projects can exist without fancy unnecessary buildings. Those places can be attractions by themselves like how Petaling Street is popular by its own.

@Redz That's the thing though, those places wouldn't have been revitalize like ever. In fact they were never the main focus. Hence why they were slumps in the first place. Having those things mentioned helped spread the spill overs of tourism more. People wouldn't got those surrounding places just to visit chinatown. They needed revitalizing but they need the reason for. Or else the gov won't waste money to upgrade those places. Chow Kit literally has no incentive to be upgraded if there's no attraction there to supplement them. And this isn't exclusive to malaysan cities either. Your main gripe is the sky scraper and yet literally the whole project has varying projects like the River of Life i mentioned. It's pretty much the whole package.

Could this have anything to do with the famously low occupancy rate of skyscrapers in China? (less than 50% on average is a figure I've heard, probably from the B1M). Basically the gov is saying "No! No more skyscrapers until you fill the ones you've already got." It's either that ,or they've decided to clamp down on Big Elevator.

YouTube channels already talking about Chinese ghost cities for over a decade now and in recent years that topic became less to talk about. Why...? Because those supposed to be ghost cities and towns one by one over the years becomes filled and more packed with residents and the streets becomes busier with lots of cars and neon lights in storefronts after dark becomes more colorful. That's turns out to be China's distinctive long term housing investment and urban planning all along from the start that most non-Chinese had little to understand about from the beginning. Chinese is famously known around the world when talking about savings, and modern Chinese tend to invest their assets in property and all of those units that most people like to talk about in those ghost towns and cities turns out to be already sold and owned. It's all about family and family stuff in Chinese tradition and culture is above everything and in modern age Chinese elder generations like to invest in properties for the next generations. That is what it's all about.

Skyscrapers in a city are mostly concentrated in one area, the downtown aka business district, China probably wants the flow not to stagnate in one location of the city and probably spread out. Anyways, as always nice episode mate.

Not sprawl as the govt put limits on sprawl to protect farm lands. In fact many small villages are starting to empty out and being demolished as the young migrates to the city. Construction will naturally slow as it will be much more difficult to get permit. This s to force better quality planning rather than just the speed. Speed however is still very important and that is why we still see too many newer sections of cities across China still looking the same. The new rule is to force better usability and more creative buildings rather than to put a stop on empty buildings. To lower vacancy, the gov is putting a stop on massive loans which is much more effective than limiting building permits. With this new rule we will expect to see more diversity and creative use of limited space rather than vanity projects which the central gov hate (but regional gov still love it). Central gov is trying purge the excess of capitalism and push regional gov to build facilities for better public use instead of luxury facility for the rich.

By the way although it seem counterintuitive due to the land needed around a mega tall skyscraper, smaller buildings actually have higher densities. In London, areas with victorian townhouses have the highest density in the city. So this planning policy doesn't inhibit accomodation and reduces cost as the higher up you go the more cost has to go into structural integrity, it's a good policy increasing light and reducing downdraught effect, that will hopefully encourage better design of the building themselves rather than just tall being part of the price tag that is spent on appearance.

I don't think people realize how tall 150m still is, even if it isn't gonna get you in the record books - 150m is about 45 stories. That is not a short building. This isn't as dramatic of a ban in absolute terms as it sounds like at first, it's only dramatic relative to China's previous building habits. A truly radical shift would be to adopt the height limit of Washington DC, where nothing can be over 130 ft, or about 11 stories.

A good approach concerning dense urban development is the one Tokyo takes. Tokyo hasn't got just one central business district where all skyscrapers are concentrated to. Instead, there is a cluster of areas where skyscrapers appear. Conveniently, these are also located next to train stations. Thus, a big number of people can commute easily without having to use cars. This concept is called Transit Oriented Development. At the same time, Tokyo has got loose zoning rules. Thus, buildings can develop freely like the market demands. This is what Chinese cities should aim for.

@Jonathan M Well, it might not be a very comfortable experience for commuters but in at least, it works. In urban areas that dense, there isn't really an alternative to public transit other than bikes maybe. Cars would consume about 40 times the space of rapid transit. Thus, the whole city would be gridlocked - even if half of the town has demolished and replaced by more lanes.

Megatalls have always been stupid vanity projects, proven by the fact that they are economically unviable without the financial backing of the state itself. Supertalls occasionally make sense, but China has far exceeded the actual demand for such high rise space in it's building spree. Some economist even believe that rising investment into skyscrapers is an indicator of a incoming recession. The theory was first put forward in 1999, not to long after the global financial crisis helped its case, and many have retroactively argued it applies to the great depression as well. I'm sure the Chinese government is not unaware of this.

Traditional Chinese architecture needs to be reinforced and must be reinforced quick. Due to constant drilling and building of those ridiculous skyscrapers where there are barely occupants, the land is not as "stable" as many assume. China is earthquake-prone as well.

I feel like it's kind of similar to how in the US, some people will choose to live in a more isolated place away from the city, while others will live right in the city.

@RazMatazz from my observation: 1. Transportation= Road in the communities can't be used by the public. 2. Lifestyle= When you take a walk, usually one side of the sidewalk is always a busy road with loud noise and heavy light & gas pollution. (Because of 1) 3. Economy= cities are divided into blocks of economic zones and residential zones, so it's hard for local start-ups and small family businesses to get started. That leads to a bad regional economy and may lead to income inequality (more money goes to online stores and big brands). 4 Culture= With the reasons above, people go from point to point in a city only, the low vitality of the city and people's lack of incentive to explore the city may slow cultural accumulation. There are also papers on this topic too I think.

US skyscrapers were necessity because of tight spaces. Than skyscrapers became status symbols. After it countries started to build sky scrapers as status symbols. Problem is, that they are not worth the money, unlike in New York. Best example is Dubai. Why do you need high buildings in the middle of nowhere in the desert? China is different, but they still build skyscrapers as a proove, that they are advanced, modern... In the meantime their buildings are crumbing and ground water is extremely contaminated...

Skyscrapers are overrated. They are much harder to evacuate and more vulnerable to disasters. Even in Japan, low rises are even more "disaster-proof" than skyscrapers. Skyscrapers can shape the skyline of the city, but banning them and giving permission to a few that fit in the overall architectural agenda of the city is a way better solution than trashing the city with random overpriced useless towers that will never be fully used.

Biggest problem is they usually are extremely expensive to build, maintain and demolish. It looks intimidating, but other than city centres where multinational companies like to HQ, they are irrelevant to most companies and citizen. I remember a skyscraper in Saigon finished around 10 years ago still struggle to fill all of their floors. Similarly, tall apartments and condominiums sound lucrative, but they also need proper planning, because too many of them and their view will just look block each other like in Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. Their main function as density housing is only viable if the city’s economy is large enough to pay for their maintenance. The way that housing is being solved in cities like LA or SF boggles the mind. They green lighted a lot of apartments, but apartments are expensive so the incentive for developers would be to build condominiums to make the most money out of it. The homeless need housing in areas where they can travel to work efficiently without having to own a vehicle. Developing a proper mass transport network to accommodate workers like in other dense urban areas is the only way to reach the root of the housing problems. Japanese mass transport looks intimidating, but considering the scale of the amount of people they move, it is what enables them to have poor workers living in cheaper housing area yet able to get to work. They still have a homeless population, but they are not becoming part of the city landscape. LA have a huge homeless population not just because they have great weather, but also because its economy is great, and a lot of homeless there do work in low paying, minimum jobs. They can’t afford a home close enough to their work, so they choose homelessness instead.

Skyscrapers only make sense in a very specific context. You can see the disconnect from the cities and the problems they cause for quality of life. Also when you compare Paris and New York, Paris manages a higher population density and higher quality of life without skyscrapers (except in La Defense).

The engineering standards are actually much higher in China - a whole new level compared to the West that foreign architects have to get used to. This is due to being in earthquake zones, as well as biannual typhoons, and usually every city's been built on a river system that experiences 50 year megafloods. The issue has historically been the corner-cutting and semi-legal homes that went up in the 80s-90s boom, when people used sub-standard materials and there was little zoning laws.

They're not a red herring, in western cities traditionally they have been used for commercial, not residential purposes. Actual residential skyscrapers are way more land efficient. For example the 152 meter tall residential skyscrapers in Sydney's suburb of st Leonard's (currently densifying) like 88 pacific highway contain 750 apartments in a space that once contained 7-10 terraces. An order of magnitude more dense.

@James Is that a green city if you have to go to a particular place and park to find some trees and space? A few ornaments slapped on old squeezed buildings doesn't hide that it is just concrete and stone wasteland. Cars allow at least to live in European city suburbs and get some space and nature. Not everyone enjoys live live like some medieval rat in dark narrow alleys. Yes cities got choked during industrial revolution, sadly European cities stayed the same way - overcrowded without changing much in planning since then. Green spaces are particularly necessity when you DON'T have cars. As you are tied and get out of that overcrowded city whenever you like.

I think this will happen as towns become more lived in and changes in their own way at a bottom up level. There are a lot of initiatives to rebuild smaller closer communities to be less car dependent and I think this will allow people to rely less on outsiders and growing relationships, communities, a separate way of life within etc. So I think a lot of towns have the potential to gain a lot of their own character. Of course, it won't be like the old days where regional cities in large countries would gain much more distinct customs, social norms, accents etc. due to the isolation, as we are more globally connected than we've ever been. And I think China's higher ups also want to steer a bit of the habits, behaviors, customs etc. of the people, not to deviate too much from what they consider traditional or normal (or desired).

@RG HK has quite the direct opposite problem- too many people for too few houses, and it's driving HK's real estate prices through the roof. The B1M's sister channel, _Tomorrow's Build_ already made a video on this topic a while back.

@Martian Builder No they are not cheap. A 120 sqm new apartment in unknown cities like Nanning still cost about 300k USD. (In Beijing or Shanghai that will be at least 1.5 million USD) The reason is most empty apartments are actually bought by investors hoping the property's value will increase in the future.

Reminds me of when emperor Augustus (the first emperor of the Roman Empire from 27bc-14ad), limited the height of the apartment buildings in Rome to 5-6 stories. Of course, China’s reasons for introducing height regulations are completely different from ancient Rome’s.

I wonder if, as time passes and demand starts to catch up, some of the buildings in those "ghost cities" can be renovated to modern building codes and finished. I would imagine there are many that will need to come down, as they were built so shoddily in the first place that they were never safe to occupy in the first place. It's very interesting to see the other extreme of city density, as compared with places like the U.S., where sprawl and urban decay are the issue.

The ghost city phenomenon isn't the same as in the West -usually projects are long term, such is the money machine in China. They're usually built for up to a decade in advance, or inline with subway system plans that can take years to install. Many youtubers and enthusiasts that went out to these ghost cities in the Tweenies filmed their disappointment when many of these supposedly empty cities had started being filled, such as Ordos, built for the population of 1 million and widely reported as empty when it was finished, though today out of 40,000 apartments built 2% remain unfilled. Genuine ghost developments do exist - a la Evergrande's megacrash, but most speculative development does get filled in the end. 400 million ruralites have moved to the cities in the past 2 decades, another 200 million are still to come, which is a fact fueling the boom -however it's gone way too far now. You 'll get many empty units in many buuldings, though not entire ghost cities. One long-lasting ghost city is Yujiapu district in Tainjin, which is half empty after a decade.

Not to mention that building high is not always a method of saving space! The higher you build the bigger the sprawl of space and the facilities needed to sustain these structures become. A mixture of Mid-rise and Highrise buildings like you find in many European and Japanese cities for example ensures the best use of space. That’s especially important in ever growing Chinese cities, so it’s a very wise decision to focus on density and living quality rather than tall extravagant buildings

I’m happy to hear it. Up until now china has thought that to look like a strong developed nation looked up to by other developed nations they need the tallest skyscrapers and buildings. Where in fact, no one goes to china for its modern buildings. We all have skyscrapers so going to another nation for theirs is blah…what makes us unique is our nations history. People go to china for the Great Wall, and the warriors and the ancient buildings. Not the modern architecture. China should have concentrated from the start on its long history and try to preserve it as much as possible. I feel like china is only starting to understand that now.

@asdkotable in Chinas case it’s because modern Chinese life isn’t as well known as the west and China’s new generation are anti west. So the future for both nations will be combative. The west has had authoritarian religion for ages, we know what religious zealots look like and China has a new religion of zealotry where their god is the party and country. They think every other nation is evil but China. We have anti China sentiment in the west BUT we also have many chinese who are citizens, China doesn’t have the same nuance. So I doubt what china looks like matters, I’m seeing tourism to China will slump and more Chinese will feel like they’re being unpatriotic if they holiday in other nations. So this conversation about future tourism is useless.

Skyscrapers create pockets of concentrated demand for transportation, power, water etc services and create congestion.

I think a lot of these problems are caused by the slowdown and decrease of the rate of population growth in these cities that has been so insanely rapid the past 2 decades that no amount of construction could ever be considered too much. I mean in 2000 the urban percentage was 36% compared to 2020's 64%. There were also another 140 million people added to the total population in that time too. So that's something like half a BILLION people added to Chinese cities in 20 years. There's a lot less room for urban migration now, and the population is probably already declining in China despite the official, but sketchy, figures. Considering the amount of empty buildings and half-constructed ones already, China I think is making a good move with this decision. Rather than have the real estate industry continue to prop itself up on fraud by imagining that the growth is going to continue forever, they're taking a more realistic stance which will cause the real estate giants to cut growth expectations but at least start filling up those older buildings. Supply is more massive than there is demand right now. Even with Chinese people relying on real estate as where they put most of their wealth, getting two or three houses each, they built so much to deal with the ballooning population that now with that balloon deflating a bit, it's time to just fill out what they've got rather than build any more. Anyway, this is just my take on it!
