Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) has now granted permission to 123 out of 130 projects to build high-rise structures after scrutinising the projects, according to the Yangon City Development Committee.
Build permits for the remaining seven buildings has been delayed by YCDC because they still need to perform renovations as directed, according to the engineering and building department.
Most of the buildings will have between 10 and 30 floors, including Golden City, Marga Land Mark, and INNO City.
Inspection teams from YCDC checked those buildings already under construction. Projects set to start in 2016 were delayed after the new government came to power. Although YCDC previously announced that they would decide on permits based on new policy, permission was granted to the most recent projects according to old policy.
