18-storey UBC wooden tower to be one of the tallest of its kind in the world
from VanCity Buzz
Another major and unique development project is coming to the University of British Columbia campus: The university's Board of Governors has approved the construction of a 174-foot-tall student residence built entirely out of wood. The project, dubbed by UBC as the "Tall Wood Building," is a significant project given that wooden buildings in B.C. do not exceed low-rise heights of six storeys. When complete, the building will become one of the tallest wood buildings in the world.
