This doesn't have to mean more storeys.
Just a minimum floor height of about 4.5 metres. Not like this one which is about 2.7m - that's the Australian minimum standard, which is jolly but is too small if adhered to strictly.
Tall floors means buildings are cared for more and get more up-cycled. This one will probably get demolished.
'Character houses' with 'tall ceilings' never get demolished.
