Footnotes: 1. Height is measured from sidewalk level of the main entrance to the architectural top of the building, including spires, but not including antennae, signage or flag poles. 2. A completed building can be considered such if it fulfils all three of the following criteria: a) topped out structurally and architecturally, b) fully-clad,

and c) open for business, or at least partially occupied.


3. A tall building is topped out when all its structural members are in place. 4. A tall building is considered to be under construction when site clearing and excavation has been completed and foundation / piling work has begun. 5. A tall building is considered to be on hold when it is widely reported within the public domain that construction has halted * Construction halted on the Ryugyong Hotel in 1992 and the project remained on-hold until 2008, when construction on the tower resumed. # Note: Federation Towers consists of a complex of two towers plus a separate, spire-topped lift core connected to both towers. Vostok Tower is 365 meters/1198 feet high, Zapad Tower is 242 meters/795 feet high, and the external lift core spire is 509 meters/1670 feet high. Material: A steel tall building is defined as one where the main vertical and lateral structural elements and floor systems are constructed from steel. A concrete tall building is defined as one where the main vertical and lateral structural elements and floor systems are constructed from concrete. A composite tall building utilizes a combination of both steel and concrete in the main structural elements throughout the building. A concrete/steel tall building indicates a steel structural system located above a concrete structural system, with the opposite true of a steel/concrete building. Use: A single-function tall building is defined as one where 85% or more of its total floor area is dedicated to a single usage. A mixed-use tall building contains two or more functions, where each of the functions occupy at least 15% of the towers total floor area. Ancillary / support areas such as car parks and mechanical plant space do not constitute mixed-use functions. Functions are denoted on CTBUH 'Tallest' lists in ascending order. For a more complete overview of the CTBUH's height criteria see http://www.ctbuh.org/criteria.htm Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat
