1510 Webster Street

New Heights: Soon to be the tallest mass timber building in California

When complete, 1510 Webster Street will be the tallest, mass-timber building in California. The timely construction of 1510 Webster Street aligns with the updated California Building Code, allowing for taller mass timber than ever before. The 19-story multi-family residential building will provide 182 units and 15,000-sf of office and retail space on the ground floor. A landscaped garden will be situated on Level 7, while the high-rise rooftop will provide a trendy rooftop lounge and amenity space.

Project Highlights

  • First high-rise in the United States to utilize point-supported mass timber and mass plywood panels (MPP).
  • This unique system required custom, laboratory testing of the MPP to determine the punching shear capacity at the point supports, as well as validate the deflection and vibration performance.
  • The engineers saved the client significant cost on the foundation and temporary shoring system by repurposing the basement walls from the existing structure that was located on the site.

For me, involvement in the early concept phase of a project is the most interesting and challenging. That is the time in a project when we can offer the greatest innovation and greatest cost saving ideas to the project team."
