INTRO is a unique mixed-use development in Cleveland, Ohio with 298 market rate apartments, a retail plaza, event space, and underground parking. Working closely with Harbor Bay Real Estate Advisors, the design team developed a comprehensive fire-protection and code-compliance program that allowed use of the 2021 International Building Code with modifications to meet the aesthetic goals of the project before that version of the code was adopted locally. INTRO is one of the first buildings to utilize the tall wood code provisions. The 512,000-square-foot project includes eight stories of mass timber over a concrete podium, and features exposed cross-laminated timber ceilings supported by glulam columns and beams.

Review a business case study for this project. Business case studies are prepared by WoodWorks and Conrad Investment Management to address the performance of US properties constructed with mass timber structural systems.  The goal is to substantively communicate the business case of mass timber buildings in a relevant and relatable fashion across a series of product sub-types, and new studies are added to the document as they are released.
