World’s tallest wooden skyscraper in Vienna

19. October 2015

More high-tech in wood

A 24-storey wooden skyscraper is to be built in Vienna. The tower will be the highest building in the world made out of wood. Construction will start in the fall of 2015 and is to be completed by 2017. The wood hybrid called “Hoho” was planned by Rüdiger Lainer + Partner ZT GmbH. 74 % of the building is to be constructed from wood, one of the most affordable materials with a high emotive quality.

The project represents an investment of EUR 65 million. The tower will be located in the heart of the Vienna’s Urban Lakeside in the north east of the city and will include a hotel, restaurants, apartment units and offices.
