World's tallest timber tower proposed for Tokyo

Japanese timber company Sumitomo Forestry has revealed plans for the world's tallest wooden building in Tokyo, a 350-metre skyscraper that would also be the country's highest.

Sumitomo Forestry, the lumber arm of one of Japan's largest corporations, is proposing the 70-storey hybrid timber skyscraper to mark the company's 350th anniversary in 2041.

Named W350, the ambitious tower would be almost four times higher than the world's current tallest timber building – the 18-storey Brock Commons Student Residence in Vancouver, Canada.

At 350 metres, the skyscraper designed by Sumitomo's Tsukuba Research Laboratory in collaboration with Tokyo practice Nikken Sekkei, would also become Japan's tallest building.
