Large cities use so-called master plans for better urban planning. Alternative names for master plans are frameworks plans and development plans.
An master plan is an informal planning instrument to explore development potential in a city or in a district and to outline prospects for its future use. It is not legally binding and is not subject to any standardized procedure.
A high-rise development plan (also known as high-rise plan) is a special form of development plan just targeting the construction of tall buildings. The high-rise plan first appeared in Frankfurt around 1998. A revision of the previous high-rise development plans is planned for 2021.
