At least, it will be a new place of attraction in the northern part of Stockholms agglomeration.

It's not to bad, but in my personal opinion it's poor design to have such enormous, more or less "flat" buildings. I really am opposed to that from my personal design principles, so to speak - to me that's poor design. Why not cut the building in half, and put the one half on top of the other? Then have room for a park, or another building (or both) next to it.

Whats up with you, norwegians, hating everything about Sweden? Also, i would say that projects in Norway don't look any better.

Eh, we are "hating" on large Norwegian malls in groundscrapers too:

They suck big time no matter where they are placed.

Yeah I'm hating on almost everything with similar general real estate/property usage, as it's kind of inefficient. No matter which country it's from. In Oslo city center we have some relatively large, almost-flat buildings, the Post sorting terminal building and the so-called Galleri Oslo. These two buildings ruin part of Oslo downtown and both are placed across the street from eachother, and that part of the street is a disaster to put it mildly, in terms of successful city development.

Now the situation with those two buildings are not directly comparable to this project, I was just telling about that to prove my point that I hate (almost) all large+flat type of structures.

Malls suck and shouldn't have a place in Europe.


That being said, this is one of the nicer examples. But where is it located, compared to the city center and esp. the old town island?

It's being built as part of a stadium/suburb/mall complex centred around the commuter rail that is being heavily upgraded by 2017 and a ring light rail line (completed 2014) that links a lot of suburbs (and to the metro system). Solna is actually quite close to the city centre at only 5.1km from Centralstation.

A part of Solna belongs to the city (the reason it is included in the urban area), while another one is treated as a suburb, if to be precise.

Grontmij has a very bad reputation lately in The Netherlands, they are involved in various scandals. I hope that everything turns out well for this project.

A mall in the suburbs... n̶o̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ little to be happy about.

No offense, I like Stockholm. I'll be there 44 times this summer.
