Plyscraper city: Tokyo to build 350m tower made of wood

https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2...ower-wood-w350

Quote:
.....

- A skyscraper set to be built in Tokyo will become the world’s tallest to be made of wood. The Japanese wood products company Sumitomo Forestry Co is proposing to build a 350 metre (1,148ft), 70-floor tower to commemorate its 350th anniversary in 2041. Japan’s government has long advertised the advantages of wooden buildings, and in 2010 passed a law requiring it be used for all public buildings of three stories or fewer.

- Sumitomo Forestry said the new building, known as the W350 Project, was an example of “urban development that is kind for humans”, with more high-rise architecture made of wood and covered with greenery “making over cities as forests”. The new building will be predominantly wooden, with just 10% steel. Its internal framework of columns, beams and braces – made of a hybrid of the two materials – will take account of Japan’s high rate of seismic activity. The Tokyo-based architecture firm Nikken Sekkei contributed to the design.

I would really like to know where all this lumber is coming from. I just read a very depressing article in The Economist regarding Death of the Amazon, as deforestation has taken off again under the new President. I hope this lumber isn't coming from the Amazon.

There is a proposal (using that loosely) for a 62-story complex in Philadelphia called Timber Towers.

The site is rumored to be the location of Comcast's third Center City highrise.

Yea, I don't think that Canada, which has the second largest amount of forest in the world (after Russia) and is the world's second largest exporter of forestry products, is promoting wood frame buildings as a way to encourage the use of wood from Brazil. Keep in mind that the problem of deforestation in Brazil isn't driven by a desire for a forestry industry which generally sees land harvested and continually re-planted, but rather a desire to clear the land for other uses such as farming and cattle grazing.

Cleveland's Landmarks Commission clears the way for Market Square Development project in Ohio City to move forward

Design plans include 253 apartments and 550 parking spaces

Posted: 8:01 AM, Apr 26, 2019 Updated: 6:53 PM, Apr 26, 2019
By: John Kosich


CLEVELAND — The possibility that the Market Plaza, a late 80s strip shopping center across the street from the West Side Market was facing the wrecking ball, was not the concern of the City's Landmarks Commission Thursday, but a sense of relief. Their focus was what would become the new neighbor of the iconic Market, the transformational mixed-use, Market Square Development.

The commission approved the design plans for the complex that will include a 7-story apartment building featuring 253 apartments and a 10-story office building that Dan Whalen with Harbor Bay Real Estate of Chicago promises will be unique.

"We're doing timber construction which hasn't been done in this state before, to this level and this scale that we're talking about," said Whalen a native of Willoughby. "So we're going to have the tallest mass timber building in the United States when its all said and done."

Currently, the tallest is an 8-story building in Portland but both will soon be eclipsed by larger projects in the pipeline across the country as developers eye the use of wood which when engineered is on a par with steel and concrete.
