the cleveland woody market square development makes the wall street journal (behind a paywall):



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...."

booo! hisss!

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)



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.)


and yes it counts even if its all not wood.

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.
