“From developer Hines and designed by Michael Green Architecture and DLR Group, this new office building’s seven stories and 220,000 square feet of mixed retail and office space will have a strong draw on local investors and the tech and creative tenant due to the warmth of wood and the embrace of green construction techniques and materials.”
Tall wood buildings are super fascinating stuff for folks interested in sustainable construction. This story is about T3, an office and retail building going up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While the bottom floor is concrete, all six floors above will be constructed entirely with timber. T3 (Timber, Technology, Transportation) is said to be the first modern tall wood building to be built in the USA.
