Tall Timber Buildings

 

The following is a list of the world tallest modern timber buildings. The criteria to appear on the list is

  • Be modern, constructed since 2008 – Why plenty of examples of older twenty century buildings of similar or greater height and 2008 was when the latest phase of tall timber construction commenced.
  • Have at least 7 storeys of timber – Why as Canada now has hundreds of timber framed apartment buildings that are 6 storeys in height. Also concrete podium construction does not count.
  • Measured in storey height – Why already too many timber structures (tower, aerials, etc.) that are taller if measured in metres.
  • Be completed or have construction underway – Why there are plenty of proposed buildings that are never built.

Know of a missing building, let us know

We are always on the lookout for project examples. Please send in any information on completed or proposed building. Also let us know if we have made a mistake. The site will be update regularly so please let us know.
