A 96m tall wooden structure is expected to become the tallest of its kind in the world

 

The 96m tall structure is expected to become the tallest of its kind in the world, as well as “a highly visible new landmark for Zanzibar and beyond”.

A 28-storey hybrid wood building called Burj Zanzibar will soon rise in Zanzibar’s Fumba town.

The building is designed to reach 96 meters in height and is expected to become the tallest of its kind in the world when completed, the current record holder being the recently certified 86.6 meter Ascent Tower in Milwaukee.

According to Engineering News, the building is planned as a “hybrid timber tower” with a steel-reinforced concrete core that is expected to “meet all required fire safety standards.”

“Panoramic windows, enclosed green loggias and a modular layout will enhance the green nature of the tower and enable flexible apartment designs, adapted to all cultural preferences,” said architect Leander Munns.

He also said that residents of the tower will be able to have their own outdoor garden on the top floor and predicted that Burj Zanzibar will become “a widely visible new landmark for Zanzibar and beyond, not only because of its appearance but also because of the method of its construction.” ”
