Traditionally, the buildings of Amman, Jordan 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.
