World’s Tallest Timber Building Redefines Perth’s Sustainability

18 June 2024

Western Australia could become home to the world’s tallest hybrid mass timber building, with plans approved for a tower in South Perth by developer Grange Development.

The ‘C6’ residential tower will be constructed using renewable timber technologies including Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), Glue Laminated Timber (Glulam) and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), and the developer claims it will also be a carbon negative building given its world-class renewable design.

On completion, C6 is planned to reach 186.5 metres high and 50 storeys, which soars well above the 25 storey, 86.6 metre Ascent in Wisconsin, USA that currently holds the mantle of the world’s tallest timber tower.

Beyond the timber construction, the C6 project has a clear focus on sustainability, with a biophilic design, and future resident access to a fleet of Tesla EVs. The building will be powered by renewable energy and there are plans for productive food to be grown onsite.

The timber construction contributes to the overall biophilic design of the building, with exposed timber structure and vertical landscaping set to include almost 3,500 sqm of floral, edible, and native gardens throughout the building.
