Denver’s tallest mass timber building will break ground in July 2023. Situated in the River North (RiNo) Arts District, the 12-storey building named “Return to Form” will be located at 3495 Wynkoop Street. “The recent development of mass timber construction allows us—for the first time in history—to design high-rise building structures out of a renewable resource: trees,” said Michael Moore, founder and design principal of Tres Birds. “This new fire-resistant building material is renewable, hence healthy for the planet. …Concrete – and the fossil fuels used to make and transport it – create more carbon that adds to global warming.” …Tres Birds and the development team won the 2022 Mass Timber Competition: Building to Net-Zero this summer for the project. The $2,000,000 prize will be shared by six winning projects and is sponsored by the Softwood Lumber Board (SLB) and USDA Forest Service.
