With timber in port, INTRO begins its rise to become the country’s tallest all-wood building


The 3,000 cubic meters of Austrian wood spent nearly three weeks on the Atlantic, riding the seaway into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, through Montreal and Niagara, 53 miles across Lake Ontario and, finally, on Monday, November 9, into the Port of Cleveland receptor dock on the edge of the city.

After the 22-day journey that began in Fügen, Austria, the timber’s now set to reach its ultimate destination: the bustling residential construction site at the intersection of West 25th Street and Lorain Avenue.
