1510 Webster Street: An All-Around, Mass Timber First

Topped out August 2023, this Oakland, California residential high-rise is not only North America's first Type IV-A building, it is currently the tallest mass timber building on the West Coast, the tallest mass timber building in a high seismic zone in the world, and is the world's first mass plywood panel point-supported building.

It's a HUGE milestone for the building industry, and we're thrilled to share why in the following DCI-produced video feature. Check out the virtual tour to learn how the project team made it happen -- no hard hat required!
