From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A low-rise is a building that is only a few stories tall or any building that is shorter than a high-rise,[1] though others include the classification of mid-rise.[2][3]

Emporis defines a low-rise as "an enclosed structure below 35 metres [115 feet] which is divided into regular floor levels".[4] The city of Toronto defines a mid-rise as a building between 4 and 12 stories.[5] They also have elevators and stairs.

Low-rise apartments sometimes offer more privacy and negotiability of rent and utilities than high-rise apartments, although they may have fewer amenities and less flexibility with leases. It is also easier to put out fires in low-rise buildings.[6]

Within the United States due to the legal-economic and modernist perspectives low-rises can in some cities be seen as less luxurious than high-rises, whereas within Western Europe (for historical identity and legal reasons) low-rise tends to be more attractive. Some businesses prefer low-rise buildings due to lower costs and more usable space. Having all employees on a single floor may also increase work productivity.[7]
