“No limitations,” were the words Delta Land Development used when they asked us to design a project that would “revolutionize the development industry.” With those words, “Canada’s Earth Tower” was born, designed to advance a comprehensive set of environmental goals in an unprecedented way.
At 40 stories, the mixed-use development will become the world’s tallest hybrid wood tower, dramatically reducing the project’s greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration.
Beyond timber, the project will be a zero-emissions building; it will not consume fossil fuels, such as natural gas, in operation. Equally important, the project will support community and dramatically improve livability in tall, urban residential buildings. Through creating meaningful connections to our natural environment, it will restore local biodiversity and provide public areas that are vibrant and accessible. By working with a visionary client, we are showing the world that we can—we must—design better buildings to affect real change.
