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).

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.

The World Towers

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 World One

World One is the first of three signature residential towers that form the core of Mumbai’s Lodha Place, a 17-acre development master planned in 2009. The project brief called for a design that would not only epitomize the highest international standards in luxury living, but symbolize the emergence of Mumbai as a key world city. This meant, among other things, establishing an iconic skyline presence characterized by unprecedented height. Until recently, high-rise residential buildings in the city topped out at around 50 stories. Planning a tower twice that height involved the reinvention of the typical “inside-out” design process and the reconsideration of a wide variety of structural and planning approaches, including safety and sustainability.

The tower’s unique cloverleaf plan and three-tier elevation is a decisive response to the singular challenge of creating a supertall residential tower on a compact site. The building’s special shape affords each residence with a corner living and dining room, featuring a wraparound terrace and unobstructed views of the city. Self-shading, cross ventilation, high-performance insulating glass, and a wide array of efficient mechanical and electrical systems contribute to the building’s anticipated LEED-Gold certification.

The building’s rigorously gridded façade is detailed in such a way that achieves a visual unity befitting its size and iconic stature from afar, while respecting the scale and clues of inhabitation up close. Fully embracing the idea that a tall building should contribute as much to the life of the city at ground level as it does on the skyline, World One’s base gives way to a generously proportioned circular entry court along a gently arced boulevard that links the tower to the city, bringing urban energy into the experience of the building.
