Is the gate these towers create somehow reasoned (e.g. historically or in terms of urban planning, perhaps as an entrance to another quarter)?

It's part of Norra stationsområdet ("Northern railway station area") which is the border area between Stockholm and Solna municipalities. These municipalities are separated by a part of the semi-ring road surrounding the inner city (the part called Norra länken, Northern link) and Tors Torn is at Torsplan on Stockholm municipality's side of the highway.

Torsplan (in the district Vasastan) is also a starting point of Stockholm's inner city from the Solna direction. So these towers both mark an administrative border and are a gateway to the inner city.

I really like this design. Especially if it were lit entirely in LED lights at night. In colors of course

Amazing towers! Hopefully they won't be canceled and let's not hope for a shorter version. They're redrawing the towers right now so I hope it will be something similar because the design is simple yet amazing!

Where are they located?
I know that close to Hötorget, there are already two small towers and a street between? Is it the same location or be planned somewhere else?

Thanks. I can see it's pretty far away from Gamla Stan. I hope it's "far enough".

But as I mentioned already: the design is great IMO.

Is it just me or you guys also see a little bit of soviet nostalgia in that design? 'Nostlagia' isn't the right word but you know what I mean!
