World's Tallest Timber Tower Proposed for Tokyo
on 27 February 2018
Known as "plyscrapers," several towers of wood are planned for development around the world. None impresses quite as much as Sumitomo Forestry's 1,148-foot-tall and $5.6 billion project: the W350 tower. It's slated to be the tallest wooden building in the world, and its construction will honor the company's 350-year anniversary. Completion of the 70-story tower is expected in 2041. Green balconies will define the exterior, while the interior will be a 90% wood hybrid structure with steel vibration-control framework. Learn more and see all of the photos at CNN.
