This research provides an overview of the effect of non-green buildings on urban heat. Objectives of this research was to evaluate the effect of the high rise non-green building in the urban area by calculating the Sky View Factor of the non-green buildings and to evaluate the trends of the temperature by comparing the current data with the backdated data of Kota Bahru, Kelantan. The research was done in Kota Bharu, Kelantan by applying Sky View Factor (SVF) calculations and comparison between current temperature of the buildings in midtown Kota Bahru with backdated temperature reading acquired from Malaysia Meteorology Department stationed in Kota Bahru. The results highlighted that Kota Bharu encountered urban heat phenomenon and this analysis shows the surrounding and building material directly influence the formation of urban heat. The highest temperature recorded was 42ᵒC on top of Kelatan Trade Center building whilst the lowest was 30ᵒC at Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen Kelantan.
