About Yantai Shimao No. 1 The Harbour

Yantai Shimao Number 1 The Harbor is the centerpiece of a complex of towers built collectively near the Yantai city waterfront, featuring a five star hotel, apartments and commercial office buildings with expansive sea views. The design of the complex reintegrates the local area with the waterfront while creating a skyline identity for the coastal city.

The signature Number 1 building is linked to a shared retail podium with 3 other residential towers and rises to 59 stories. The uppermost floors are made up of a series of setbacks forming a crown which culminates into a single spire. The structure is a composite featuring a concrete core with perimeter columns and floorplates framed with steel. The tower is then clad in a sleek curtain wall of blue glass. The tower has a hexagonal form with a longer orientation facing towards a waterfront park, maximizing ocean views. Upon completion, the Number 1 Harbor tower became Yantai’s first supertall building.
