Why demand for high-rise building increases in Hyderabad?
Vice President of CREDAI G Ram Reddy has been quoted saying that construction of high-rise building requires the permission of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) and as earlier, Hyderabad Airport was located in the heart of the city, many high-rise buildings were not constructed.
Apart from it, many people are looking for high-rise buildings as it provides them sufficient space to live and the option to reside near their offices.
