Looks really unique! Great result.

When will the tower be increased to 174 meters?

I hate the shape, it's so ugly. But the cladding makes up for it mostly!

C'mon, the shape is alright. It would look much worser, if it was a plain | . 'T' is a letter and a not very often used shape for a tower.

It's definitely unique, just not my cup of tea. The whole thing about looking like the letter T is the problem for me.

But the end result came out nicely, mostly because of the nice cladding.

Yeah, definitely! Here's a night picture taken from the Swedish forum section.
And let's hope they start construction soon for the 91 meter highrise nearby!

Wow, very cool. I love the design, it's very different, not your typical box! Well done Stockholm!

7/10. The cladding is good but the shape is awful.

I didn't like the renders, but this has turned out so brilliantly.

I don’t like the shape, but I like the tower because it‘s unique and the hight is good. And I’ve never heard about this tower, so when I saw pictures of this tower I was suprised.

Surprise surprise! It really stands out as Stockholm is known to not have a well-defined cluster.

Exactly! The facade turned out to be exciting!
