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."

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).

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 1 Corporate Avenue

Riverview Plaza is a high-rise complex located in Wuhan, one of the major transportation and commercial hubs in China. The development consists of three towers and a podium building that is meant to become one of the city’s main attractions and economic drivers. The design of Riverview Plaza aims to celebrate Wuhan’s freshwater and commercial heritage, as well as its emergence as a political, economic, and cultural center. At 450 meters, the main tower will stand among the tallest in the city.

The design of 1 Corporate Avenue represents a contemporary interpretation of traditional Chinese architecture. Patterns on the glass are inspired by decorative window screens that are found throughout the region. While the references are traditional, the performance is modern: the curtain walls will be made from energy-efficient double glazing units that conform to the requirements of the LEED certification system. A number of other sustainable design strategies have been integrated into the building, including water-efficient toilet fixtures, LED lighting, occupancy and daylight sensors, and the use of environmentally friendly building materials. The form of the tower itself is inspired by the sampans (small, flat-bottomed boats) that once crowded the Yangtze River.

Though the tower operates on a vertical scale as a symbolic representation of the city’s heritage, it also functions practically at the human scale. The four-level podium at the base of the development will contain a convention center, movie theaters, restaurants, and a shopping mall. A four-block-long skylight will bring natural light into the interior shopping areas. On the south end of the site, a giant video screen will hovers over a public plaza, which is intended to become a gathering place on special occasions.
