Country’s Tallest Wooden Building Rising in Cleveland

Ambitious project proceeds despite coronavirus crisis

"In Cleveland, a developer is moving ahead with an ambitious project despite the pandemic: the country’s tallest wooden building. The nine-story development, dubbed Intro, will include 298 apartments, retail space and an event venue. It is being built primarily with mass timber, a type of pressed wood that is gaining popularity as a climate-friendly alternative to steel and concrete...."

now it looks like milwaukee's bigger woody than cleveland's is a go.

at least the cle will hold the crown for a few months tho lol:

https://urbanmilwaukee.com/2020/09/2...-timber-tower/

Intro: 9-story 350,000-square-foot 290 units
(retail base and underground parking)
https://forum.urbanohio.com/uploads/...bd8b37774.jpeg


Ascent: 25-story 284 ft tall 493,000-square-foot 259 units
(Topping out at 283 feet, the building would surpass the 280-foot Mjos Tower in Norway. Ascent will include a six-story concrete base used as a parking garage.)

Is it just me or is this not "just" wood. Seems to me that combining wood in layers with adhesive would make it much stronger while making it more resistant to burning.

tokyo had plans for a big wood tower project in 2018, i wonder if that is still a go?

At the moment, wooden multi-storey buildings are very popular all over the world. In the future this material can completely replace concrete buildings. Due to the large growth in popularity, there is a great need for qualified specialists in the processing of wood and preparing it for use in buildings. My father devoted most of his life to woodworking and is considered one of the best specialists in the city, but in his opinion his skills are not enough to take part in the construction of large buildings. Apparently there are clear differences in preparation and specificity of the woodworking wizard. Despite this, I am sure that if the construction of wooden buildings in my city begins, my father will be attracted to participate in it. I am still learning this craft, but I hope to participate in the construction of large buildings. Many projects are currently under development, but I am sure that wooden structures will gradually be used around the world.

Although the subject is an ancient history, it contains great information. I will soon build a wooden house and buy a wood stove. Reading books will be great.
