The CTF Tianjin
LERA provided a four-stage peer review for both the tower and podium of this 96-story, 530-m (1,740-ft) supertall tower with a four-level basement structure and an 86 m (282 ft) roof crown assembly. Totaling 389,980 sm (4.2 million sf), the mixed-use tower will contain office, serviced apartment and hotel floors, and the 32-m (105-ft) podium building is topped by an undulating green roof.
Designed to meet LEED Gold standards, the structurally unique tower utilizes curved corners, a tapering form and an open top and porous crown to dramatically reduce wind loads while maximizing structural efficiency. The high-performance façade system was designed to significantly reduce heating and cooling requirements while maximizing daylighting and views.
