. From what I can tell… High-rise building is defined as a building 35 meters or greater in height, which is divided at regular intervals into occupiable levels. To be considered a high-rise building a structure must be based on solid ground, and fabricated along its full height through deliberate processes (as opposed to naturally-occurring formations). A high-rise building is distinguished from other tall man-made structures by the following guidelines: 1. It must be divided into multiple levels of at least 2 meters height; 2. If it has fewer than 12 such internal levels, then the highest undivided portion must not exceed 50% of the total height; 3. Indistinct divisions of levels such as stairways shall not be considered floors for purposes of eligibility in this definition. *High-rise buildings became possible with the invention of the elevator (lift) and cheaper, more abundant building materials. Buildings between 75 feet (23 m) and 491 feet (150 m) high are, by some standards, considered high-rises. Buildings taller than 492 feet (150 m) are classified as skyscrapers. The average height of a level is around 13 feet (4 m) high, thus a 79 foot (24 m) tall building would comprise 6 floors.

    Number of floors. Multi-floor or multi-story is typically under, say, 10 floors. High rise is higher. I don't think there's a solid definition so 10 is quite arbitrary.
