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.

serviced apartments / 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.

Height
Architectural
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."

272.5 m / 894 ft

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).
277.3 m / 910 ft
Occupied
Height is measured from the level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance to the highest occupied floor within the building.
255.1 m / 837 ft
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).

66

Floors Below Ground
The number of floors below ground should include all major floors located below the ground floor level.

# of Apartments
Number of Apartments refers to the total number of residential units (including both rental units and condominiums) contained within a particular building.

506

# of Hotel Rooms
Number of Hotel Rooms refers to the total number of hotel rooms contained within a particular building.

413

Tower GFA
Tower GFA refers to the total gross floor area within the tower footprint, not including adjoining podiums, connected buildings or other towers within the development.

Luxury Hotel Anchors Victoria Dockside Redevelopment in Hong Kong

Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) has completed the Rosewood Hotel in Hong Kong. The Rosewood Tower anchors the redeveloped Victoria Dockside, Hong Kong’s new creative...

About Victoria Dockside

Victoria Dockside, a US $2.6 billion, 3 million square feet art and design district on the promenade of Hong Kong's iconic Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. Set to fully open in 2019, the mixed-use development will offer Grade A office space K11 Atelier, an ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotel, Rosewood Residences, and a premier art, design and leisure experiences with unmatched views of Victoria Harbor and Hong Kong Island. The new neighborhood will reinvigorate the Victoria harborfront and create a top destination for both Hong Kong residents and its 60 million annual visitors. Victoria Dockside is built on the site formerly known as Holt's Wharf - a warehouse terminal next to the Kowloon and Canton Railway in Tsim Sha Tsui. Dating back to 1910, Holt's Wharf served as a global freight and logistics hub, connecting the city to the world. The site helped establish Hong Kong's reputation as the gateway to the Far East and played a major role in the city becoming the busiest port in the world.

Conceptualized by acclaimed architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox, renowned urban designer and landscape architect James Corner and over 100 designers and consultants around the globe, Victoria Dockside is rising as Hong Kong’s striking new landmark on the Tsim Sha Tsui harborfront.

In November 2017, Victoria Dockside reaches major project milestone with opening of its first phase, K11 Atelier, the iconic mixed-use office tower. K11 Atelier is the first workplace that integrates innovation, art and commerce in one building, redefining modern work space by creating an inspiring office environment and interconnected ecosystem for top talent. The exterior of K11 Atelier is exquisitely cladded in Portuguese limestone piers, accented with bronze trims for timeless elegance. K11 Atelier acknowledges the maritime history of the Victoria Dockside site, with the use of natural wood throughout the interiors, building upon the neutral palette of the textured exterior.

The Rosewood Hong Kong opened in March 2019, featuring 322 rooms and 91 suites, as well as 186 Rosewood branded residences accommodating longer stays. With eight bars and restaurants, Victoria Dockside became an active focal point of the new Kowloon waterfront crafted from reclaimed land and looping pedestrian bridge known as Avenue of Stars.
