Here
1000 square meters of shopping/stores and restaurants; i.e., a shopping mall on 3 levels with escalators.

Three stories is well within the city code.
It's when they approach five that I begin to question

I believe someone was picking on your "to tall" instead of "too tall".

The code that sets the maximum height of buildings...

The "building code" for the maximum height of buildings is set by the city in meters (not stories). I think that currently the meter height "allowable" () is 15 meters or about 50 feet.
