Floors
Above Ground

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).

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

Wuxi Maoye City

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.

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.

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 Wuxi Maoye City - Marriott Hotel

Located on busy Qingyang Road, Wuxi Maoye City - Marriott Hotel was among a trio of three different projects completed in 2014 as the first supertall buildings in Wuxi. The Wuxi Maoye City - Marriott Hotel is the tallest building in a complex of six towers, with the other five constructed as residential towers. Wuxi Maoye City - Marriott Hotel is positioned on the corner of a large retail podium housing a mall and the Moi department store. The retail uses pass through the first six floors of the tower and into a southward extension of the podium, upon which the two shortest residential towers in the complex were constructed on.

While the five residential towers were constructed with reinforced concrete, Wuxi Maoye City - Marriott Hotel was built as a composite frame composed of a reinforced concrete core and a perimeter structure of hallow steel box columns encased in concrete. The overall structure was built as a core and outrigger system with reinforcing steel belt trusses wrapping a tall mechanical level at floors 26 and 46. The tower is flush with the ground level on two sides and other than the attached podium roof, there are no setbacks over the full height of the building.

The tower is glad in a smooth glass curtain wall with small indentations running vertically up the exterior to the 60th floor before turning horizontal. This feature combined with the exterior grates of the mechanical floors adds visual texture to an otherwise simple façade without any other flourishes.

Wuxi Maoye City - Marriott Hotel is located one block north of Wuxi International Finance Plaza, and together they are the centerpiece of a new central business district and serve as a new focal point for the rapidly growing Wuxi skyline.
