First of its kind 12-storey wooden building coming to Langford

A groundbreaking was held on Wednesday, Oct. 23  for a first-of-its-kind, 12-storey tall wooden mixed-use building in Langford.

The building, called Tallwood 1, will be located at 2830 Peatt Road and is a part of the upcoming District 56 complex. Tallwood 1 will be a mass timber, mixed-use residential and commercial building while the neighbouring mass-timber building, Terminus, will be a five-storey commercial building. 

Mass timber properties are built using a new construction method that uses primarily B.C. wood. Mass timber buildings can be built faster than traditional steel and cement construction in a process that is described as innovative and safe by the province.
