How tall can you build in cross-laminated timber in MN? WA recently changed the building code to allow it up to 18 stories or so. It can make for a more cost effective building than concrete/steel, but certainly more than wood frame at 5 over 1.

The recently-approved TIMBR building in the North Loop is going to be ten stories of mass timber construction, so at least that tall. The limiting factor there is the historic district height limitations, though, so I'm not sure what the code maximum height is.

The current MN building code is based on IBC 2012 so 6 floors (example: T3) is the highest you can go with mass timber; 5 floors if residential . If you design per IBC 2021 by you can theoretically go 18 but obviously this requires an approved variance.

A little quick googling shows a height of 119 for TMBR.

Conventional concrete construction is an environmental disaster. The amount of natgas which has to burned to make the cement is huge, plus a lot of dirty diesel to haul it there and hoist all that weight into place.

Looks like they're planning on keeping the semi trucks pulling a 90° back in from Lyndale feature. Early stages but not a fan of this

Care to elaborate? Are they planning some form of retail large enough it requires semi parking/loading?

Twitter guy says 10,000 SF retail. Renderings look like pretty generic 6 story stick frame.

Do they have a strategy to monetize all that parking, I wonder, or is it just there to mollify the neighborhood group? Will parking be a $200 a month add-on for your $1300 a month tiny apartment?
