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."

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.

Eton Place Dalian

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.

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 Eton Place Dalian Tower 1

At its heart, Eton Place Dalian Tower 1, also known as Supertower One, functions as the central unifying element of the Eton Place complex, which itself is designed to operate as the focal point of Dalian’s fast-expanding central business district (CBD). Located on the western edge of the CBD, the tower will offer breathtaking views of the surrounding area, including the city skyline, the harbor port at Dalian Bay, and a nearby mountain range. It is well integrated into the surrounding city, as it is placed on a major thoroughfare running from the airport to the central Dalian Station. The tower shares a podium with Eton Place Dalian Tower 2, or Supertower Two, which is a high-end residential project offering serviced apartments and small office/home office (SOHO) accommodations.

Dalian Center aims to set a new standard for luxury retail development for the city, with the goal of becoming the regional center of commercial activity. Designed for the human-scale, the tower provides a fresh, contemporary expression of the city’s commitment to environmental sensitivity and healthy urban living in China. Public areas – sky lobbies, green spaces, meeting areas, observation decks, and other communal zones – are spread throughout the project on varying levels to create a lively, active vertical development that attracts a new generation of residents. Functionally, Eton Place Dalian Tower 1 includes office floors, a five-star suite hotel with approximately 200 rooms, and the Eton Hotel with approximately 600 rooms. Amenities include two fitness centers with pools, restaurants, retail shops, and landscaped sky gardens that ascend upwards through the building. An efficient central core provides the office levels with multi-tenant layouts and maximum flexibility with its column-free floor area. Rising above the podium, the tower offers tenants access directly into the shopping and entertainment complex.
