According to the International Building Code and the Building Construction and Safety Code, high-rise buildings are buildings of 75 feet or greater in height measured from the lowest level of fire department vehicle access to the floor of the highest occupiable story. high-rise buildings increase in number every year and the most common high-rise buildings are the commercial ones, but recently investors have turned part of their attention to residential high-rise buildings which is also on the increase and for that matter the focus of this study. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the impact of high rise living upon residents '˜satisfaction. My study specifically attempts to determine the important benefits of living in high rise buildings, to determine the critical challenges faced by residents of high rise buildings, to determine the level of satisfaction of occupants of high rise buildings and to make recommendations to improve on present and future high building schemes. In achieving the objectives of this paper, the survey design was chosen. The target population involved all occupants of residential high-rise building with a convenient sample of 65 respondents selected randomly to participate. The structured questionnaire was used to collect views from respondents and the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences was used to analyze the data. The study found that despite the challenges occupants faced with high living, occupants were generally satisfied and also enjoyed the benefits of privacy and luxury living. The study however, ended with some recommendations. Accident cases from machines/tools always being a major percentage but deaths are mainly by falling and electric shocks. In most cases, the control of safety management at sites is not strictly, frequently slacken while the owner and contractors only focusing on completion schedule and profits; insufficient interest to safety for people on sites. Major part is from the lack of understandings/perception on safety of the workers themselves. Everyone should aware on the important of safety, everyone should aware about the preciousness of human being and many losses comes from the accidents.
