In densely populated urban centers, 'High Rise' condominiums and buildings for other purposes may be the only solution due to limited availability of space. General consensus suggests that a building of more than twelve stories is referred to as a 'High Rise' building.
As with descriptions of a Low Rise or a Mid Rise building, location plays a role in the final definiton of a High Rise. Large urban cities may refer to a High Rise as beginning at sixteen or eighteen floors, whereas smaller urban cities may percevie a High Rise to begin at more than twelve floors.
Nevertheless, the values noted in this chart merely state general real estate averages.
- 1-3 stories = Low Rise
- 4-12 stories = Mid Rise
- 12-40 stories = High Rise
- 40+ stories = Skyscraper
