Korb + Associates, Thornton Tomasetti Unveil Design for Proposed 21-Story Timber Tower in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — Korb + Associates Architects and structural engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti have unveiled the design for a proposed 21-story timber tower in downtown Milwaukee. New Land Enterprises is the developer for the 410,000-square-foot project known as Ascent. The multifamily building will include street-level retail space. At 238 feet tall, the tower is poised to become the tallest timber structure in the western hemisphere, according to Thornton Tomasetti. Mass timber structures help absorb carbon dioxide and save energy. They performs as well as, or better than, traditional materials in fire, earthquake and wind conditions, according to the project team. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2019.
