Earlier this month, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) announced the winners for its 2019 awards program. The winning projects represent the best tall buildings, urban contributions, technologies, and innovations emerging around the world. The 181 Fremont Tower in San Francisco received awards in five categories.
