The Spar

The task put to our team by the client was to create a 450-foot tall mass timber tower in a practical and economic way.  The feasibility study was a rigorous effort to create something that is real, buildable, and competitive.

Combining our recent experience on Brock Commons, 3 Civic Plaza and other work, Fast + Epp is taking a holistic approach with the structural system for this tower, and is using the full suite of structural materials, where they make sense.
