The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) announced the winners of the 17th Annual CTBUH Awards Program. These winning projects — comprising tall buildings, urban developments, and technical innovations — competed for winning distinctions at the 2019 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference from April 8-10, 2019 in Shenzhen.tall buildings

The CTBUH Awards Jury has named Salesforce Tower in San Francisco the “Best Tall Building Worldwide”, in addition to naming Category Winners across 20 award categories.

Described by Best Tall Building Jury Chair Karl Fender, Founding Partner, Fender Katsalidis Architects, as a “building that gives back,” Salesforce Tower was recognized for its multipronged focus on occupant health, sustainability, structural efficiency, and a significant level of integration with the surrounding urban habitat. The result is not just a contribution to the city skyline, but a highly successful exercise in human-centric and resilient design for tall buildings

Salesforce Tower was selected from the “Best Tall Building” track, which falls into five height thresholds: under 100 meters, 100–199 meters, 200–299 meters, 300–399 meters, and 400 meters and above. Additional categories include: Urban Habitat, Innovation, Renovation, Interior Space, and Construction, alongside five categories focused specifically on Engineering achievements.

The CTBUH Annual Awards program recognizes projects and individuals that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level. The objective is to deliver a comprehensive and sophisticated view of these important buildings, spaces, and technologies, while advocating for improvements in every aspect of their performance, especially those that have the greatest effect on the people who use them each day.
