CTBUH Announces Award of Excellence Winners for Annual Awards Program

CHICAGO, IL — The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) announces the Award of Excellence Winners for the CTBUH 2020 Awards Program. The winning projects represent the very best tall buildings, urban contributions, technologies and innovations emerging recently in cities around the world.

Winners were selected across a variety of categories, with projects in the “Best Tall Building” track falling 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, Renovation, Interior Space and Construction, alongside five categories focused specifically on engineering achievements. Awards for Innovation, Lifetime Achievement, 2020 CTBUH Fellows and 10 Year Awards will be announced at a later date.

“This year’s Award of Excellence Winners communicate the diversity of interdisciplinary thought and innovation that will characterize both current and future generations of urban development around the world,” said Best Tall Building Jury Chair Karl Fender, Director at Fender Katsalidis Architects. “These recognitions, bestowed by the world’s premier authority on tall buildings, showcase these projects to a global audience and help drive a meaningful conversation about the quality of our urban environments.”

The Award of Excellence winners in the Construction Digest area include: NEMA Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, in the Best Tall Building 200-299 Meters category and LondonHouse Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, winning the Renovation Award.

The Award of Excellence Winners will now move on to the next stage of the CTBUH Awards Program, sending the owner/developers and design/engineer teams for the projects to the CTBUH 2020 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference, where they will compete in front of an international audience and live juries for “Best in Category” distinctions. The event will conclude with the announcement of the “2020 Best Tall Building Worldwide.”

The 2020 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference will take place in Chicago from April 5–7, 2020. Hosted at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, the conference will include not only an awards ceremony, but also a dinner, a VIP networking reception and separate program tracks discussing topics in the urban development and tall building industry.

Registration for the 2020 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference is now open at, where additional details can be found.
