Traditionally, the buildings of Amman had a unified human scale that primarily consisted of cubic buildings ranging from one to four stories in height. This scale is being greatly compromised as a result of the advent of the high-rise buildings.

The city is currently experiencing rapid growth that is reshaping the ancient city into a commercial hub. New projects and proposals in and around the city include: the Abdali Downtown project; the construction of the Jordan Gate Towers near the 6th Circle, which is nearly completed; the Heights Tower, consisting of 35 floors, which will house apartments and is currently under construction by DAMAC Properties; and the Limitless Towers which will be the tallest in Amman and consist of two identical 65 floor buildings connected by a pedestrian walkway that will house the world's highest swimming pool. The project will be built in Abdoun.[1]
