What could be Denver's tallest mass timber building is set to break ground in July 2023. Situated in the River North (RiNo) Arts District, the 12-story building named “Return to Form” will be located at 3495 Wynkoop Street.

Tres Birds and their development team were the winners of the 2022 Mass Timber Competition: Building to Net-Zero this summer for the "Return to Form" project. Sponsored by the Softwood Lumber Board (SLB) and the USDA Forest Service (USDA), a US$2 million will be distributed among the six winning projects.

The mass timber will be made from Douglas fir from the Pacific Northwest and will be designed so that walls and ceilings show exposed wood. Large windows will slide open. Only a small percentage of the building will be made with concrete including the foundation, stairs, and elevator core.
