Victoria Tower claims to be 27 cm taller than KST

The only bad thing about this building is that it is in Kista.

It is so OFF from the City and it'll look kinda lonely there all by itself.

It's just 15min by subway to Kista from downtown Also, it won't be lonely, KST is almost as tall and is just 5 blocks away. More towers are planned for Kista too (tho not nearly enough to get a real cluster going).

Nice cladding and height, but I don't like that kind of shape...

I like the idea of a T-shaped tower. In addition the cladding looks better than on the renderings.

The shape makes it look like a water tower.

To us locals it doesn't. But that might be because our watertowers look like this:
