Roots in Hamburg

Germany’s tallest wooden high-rise building

The tallest wooden building in Germany is being built in the heart of Hamburg’s Hafencity: “Roots”. 181 apartments, 1,700 square meters of office space and 2,000 square meters of exhibition space will be built on 18 floors.

The builder and owner is Garbe Immobilien-Projekte GmbH. This project focuses on the symbiosis of sustainability and urban living. For this reason, the surrounding loggias around the house are equipped with Lumon Glazing.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
