Frederiks Tower - CPH - WILL BE S&B'S TALLEST!!!!

Just read this amazing article from Ørestad.dk, and decided to share it with you ! (it's only in danish (see link on bottom of page)...i'll just briefly translate it..)

New tallest in Scandinavia, to be located in Ørestaden
01-04-2006


About 8 months ago, Godfred Louis-Jensen (danish architect) proposed a 40-storey (140m) highrise/skyscraper on Krøyers Plads. Søren Pind, the mayor incharge of buildings in Copenhagen, has since day-1 called this an "interesting project". However, it did not get too much positive feedback from some of thel copenhageners in the area, and obviously not the NIMBYs!! The project remained silent for a while...
Now, 8 months later, the tables have turned! Not only has this project been approved by the municipality, but it's almost 1/3 times taller than originally proposed. (56 storeys, 196m). When built, it will be the tallest skyscraper in the S&B region! The building process will start sometime in the beginning of the summer (july/august) of this year, and is estimated to finish within the next 4 years.

Here is the link to the danish article
(April fools)



Sorry i had to do that... Cheers
