A new California law mandates taller buildings, according to the Associated Press.
The law passed with bipartisan support last week and aims to make it more difficult for developers to raise the height of their buildings to compete with the high-rises of the future.
The bill requires developers to pay for additional height in the buildings they’re building, but it also mandates that developers pay to build taller buildings than their existing height limits.
The AP says that the measure will raise $200 billion over the next five years.
The measure also includes an additional requirement that all new buildings be built with steel and aluminum, and that new buildings that are built with wood or other renewable materials be built at least 60 percent smaller than the height they already have.
The Associated Press also says the measure also sets new guidelines for the height limits for the California State Capitol.
The new law comes after a slew of high-rise buildings were completed in the state over the past two decades, and the new requirements are expected to make them even taller than they were in the past.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the new law will take effect in 2021.
