A 7 story hybrid timber building has been proposed for downtown Minneapolis. The project, named T3 is a projected 7 stories in height and offers a spacious 210,000 sqft of office space. Michael Green Architecture has designed the project and was chosen for their many previous successes including BC's Wood Innovation and Design Centre in Prince George. The T3 building represents a turning point in American construction where renewable materials play a major roll in the healthy development of our modern cities. These projects work to illustrate and tighten the relationship humanity has with our natural environment. Heavy timber panels and glulam columns will be used to meet fire structural design requirements for this landmark project.
