Through systematic analysis of the evolvement of high-rise regulations in European and American cities, this paper attempts to summarize some rationale in hope of setting a theoretical foundation for smart high-rise regulation. The study suggests that the development of high-rise regulations are driven by the economic, environmental, and social impact of high-rises on surrounding neighborhoods. Some concluding key points consist of; 1) high-rise regulations should be context specific; 2) high-rise regulations should comprehensively consider the impact and interaction of high-rises on the surrounding environment; 3) high-rise regulations should encourage the development of high-rise clusters rather than individual high-rises, in order to effectively increase density, and facilitate urban growth and renewal; 4) high-rise regulations should emphasize on creating a vibrant inner city rather than shaping urban morphology; 5) high-rise regulations should give more attention to the street level rather than traditional top-level of high-rises; 6) high-rise regulations should be scientifically formulated by the use of data processing technology such as GIS. The goal of smart high-rise regulations is to create a sense of belonging for residents, a unique urban experience, and an interactive neighborhood environment.
