The 2003 fire led to new regulations for high rise buildings. A 2004 ordinance required all high-rises, built before a 1975 fire ordinance, to set up voice communication systems, sprinkler systems or other suppression mechanisms and fireproofing to protect stairwells and openings on balconies or vestibules.
