New apartment towers are springing up all over the city that already features many such buildings.

...apartments to live at i suppose?

Yes. They are springing up all over and the skyline is full of slender apartment towers. Note the construction of concrete skeleton with ceramic brick walls. That, as far as I can tell, provides a very strong structure that is structurally fire proof. At least in homes I have known the hollow ceramic bricks also provide the runs for wiring, 220 volt up here, so all wiring is in fireproof ceramic isolation. I once joked that if building were as here the country would burn overnight because there was not as much care to isolate and insulate wiring. Not a lot of need really when you could in fact run a bare (though it is insulated wire) hot and bare neutral through two separate ceramic brick channels pretty safely.
