How High Can You Go in Barbados?

miamibeachhighriseCan you help me?  I just returned from Miami Beach, where high rise buildings (hotels and condos) line the beach.  Here in Barbados we clearly have a height limit on buildings along the shore – but I’m having a difficult time finding what that limit is and how it came to be.  I see in Warrens that buildings are far taller than those on the shoreline.  Is there a height limit on buildings in the Warrens area as well?

Thank you!  xx

    Rumour is there is some ridiculous law that limits the height on these things in Barbados, which is a real shame since some communities over there just look so crowded and ugly, when a high rise would’ve accommodated so many more people. I’m all for cultural cognizance but let’s face it everybody can’t have a detached house and land on a tiny little island! I guess you’d have to call Town & Country Planning Department and find out your answer.
