This September, the City of Ann Arbor, Michigan approved a new 8-story housing development, designed by Synecdoche. With construction starting in 2024, the building is set to be complete in about two years. The project is likely to be the first in Michigan designed to mass timber standards defined in the 2021 International Building Code, which the State of Michigan is expected to adopt into its code in 2024.
