Woodn’t You Know It

Most new construction is built from either concrete or steel, but developers in Minneapolis’ North Loop are thinking old school. Their new building, the T3, will utilize wood construction. Bob Pfefferle, director of the developer Hines Interests, says using wood is “stuff that was done 100 years ago, but really hasn’t been done since then.” The new wooden building will be in good company with the century-old wooden warehouse buildings so prevalent in the North Loop.
