Height

Height is measured from the level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance to the architectural top of the building, including spires, but not including antennae, signage, flag poles or other functional-technical equipment. This measurement is the most widely utilized and is employed to define the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) rankings of the "World's Tallest Buildings."

To Tip:

Height is measured from the level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance to the highest point of the building, irrespective of material or function of the highest element (i.e., including antennae, flagpoles, signage and other functional-technical equipment).

Height is measured from the level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance to the highest occupied floor within the building.

Floors

The number of floors above ground should include the ground floor level and be the number of main floors above ground, including any significant mezzanine floors and major mechanical plant floors. Mechanical mezzanines should not be included if they have a significantly smaller floor area than the major floors below. Similarly, mechanical penthouses or plant rooms protruding above the general roof area should not be counted. Note: CTBUH floor counts may differ from published accounts, as it is common in some regions of the world for certain floor levels not to be included (e.g., the level 4, 14, 24, etc. in Hong Kong).

Golden Eagle Tiandi Tower A
Name of Complex

A complex is a group of buildings which are designed and built as pieces of a greater development.

Type

CTBUH collects data on two major types of tall structures: 'Buildings' and 'Telecommunications / Observation Towers.' A 'Building' is a structure where at least 50% of the height is occupied by usable floor area. A 'Telecommunications / Observation Tower' is a structure where less than 50% of the structure's height is occupied by usable floor area. Only 'Buildings' are eligible for the CTBUH 'Tallest Buildings' lists.

Country

The CTBUH follows the United Nations's definition of Country, and thus uses the lists and codes established by that organization.

City

The CTBUH follows the United Nations's definition of City, and thus uses the lists and codes established by that organization.

Address
Function

A single-function tall building is defined as one where 85% or more of its usable floor area is dedicated to a single usage. Thus a building with 90% office floor area would be said to be an "office" building, irrespective of other minor functions it may also contain.

A mixed-use tall building contains two or more functions (or uses), where each of the functions occupy a significant proportion of the tower's total space. Support areas such as car parks and mechanical plant space do not constitute mixed-use functions. Functions are denoted on CTBUH "Tallest Building" lists in descending order, e.g., "hotel/office" indicates hotel function above office function.

hotel / office
Structural Material

Steel
Both the main vertical/lateral structural elements and the floor spanning systems are constructed from steel. Note that a building of steel construction with a floor system of concrete planks or concrete slab on top of steel beams is still considered a “steel” structure as the concrete elements are not acting as the primary structure.

Reinforced Concrete
Both the main vertical/lateral structural elements and the floor spanning systems are constructed from concrete which has been cast in place and utilizes steel reinforcement bars.

Precast Concrete
Both the main vertical/lateral structural elements and the floor spanning system are constructed from steel reinforced concrete which has been precast as individual components and assembled together on-site.

Mixed-Structure
Utilizes distinct systems (e.g. steel, concrete, timber), one on top of the other. For example, a steel/concrete indicates a steel structural system located on top of a concrete structural system, with the opposite true of concrete/steel.

Composite
A combination of materials (e.g. steel, concrete, timber) are used together in the main structural elements. Examples include buildings which utilize: steel columns with a floor system of reinforced concrete beams; a steel frame system with a concrete core; concrete-encased steel columns; concrete-filled steel tubes; etc. Where known, the CTBUH database breaks out the materials used in a composite building’s core, columns, and floor spanning separately.

About Golden Eagle Tiandi Tower A

Golden Eagle Tiandi Tower A is the tallest of three towers in a complex called Golden Eagle Square Plaza. The tower is sited north of the Huxi central business district in the blossoming city of Nanjing. The development is mixed-use in nature, featuring a five-star hotel, office spaces, and apartments. A massive white-clad podium structure forms the base, with the three towers rising from each corner. The podium’s roof features a multi-level landscaped park replete with outdoor seating and a pool. It will also contain retail space, restaurants, and entertainment options for both office workers and residents in the complex. The towers flare outward as they rise, appearing to lean gently away from the center of the complex.

Golden Eagle Tiandi Tower A is designed to absorb plentiful natural light, while also mitigating solar heat gain with a pixilated screen of sun-blocking elements on a single elevation. The remaining three elevations utilize a large unitized curtain wall solution, a system that also punctuates the sun-blocking façade in small rectangular sections, offering a visual shift for the observer and permitting unimpeded sunlight to shine in certain areas of the building.

The most prominent feature in the complex is a traversable multi-story linkage between the three towers at height. The linkage has a domed roof and offers communal space in the form of a rooftop garden lounge. With this feature, occupants will also be able to utilize the services of each tower without being required to navigate the podium below. Providing a connection of this nature at height is an impressive feat in a seismic zone, and required a great deal of research on the structures’ performance under wind loads and earthquakes.
