The First Modern Tall Wood Building Constructed In The US

Dec 01, 2016

Designed by Vancouver based Michael Green Architecture (MGA) in conjunction with Architect-of-Record DLR Group, the seven-storey high-rise in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighbourhood is the largest mass timber building in the United States.

When Hines approached MGA with this exciting project they envisioned T3 as a unique model of new-office building; an opportunity to offer a modern interpretation of the robust character of historic wood, brick, stone, and steel buildings with the additional benefits of state of the art amenities, environmental performance, and technical capability.

The project is an investment in both the past and future of Minneapolis and in the warehouse district’s rich history. The design objective for T3 was to build on the character of the past with a modern perspective. T3, which stands for ‘Timber, Technology, Transit’, offers 224,000 square feet of office and retail space. 

T3 is currently the largest completed mass timber building in the U.S. A pioneer in this building type, T3 has broken new ground and is perhaps a prototype for future commercial mass timber buildings.
