14-storey timber tower to be ‘symbol of wood sustainability'

Made with wood that doesn't need to be fire proofed

The University of Toronto is slated to build a timber tower that it says will be among the tallest of its kind in North America.

A 14-storey building, made of wood and concrete, will be built at its downtown campus above the Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport off Bloor St. W. Construction is tentatively set to begin in 2019.
