I checked it, but all I can find is confirmation about 82 floors. How can you be so sure that 82 floors translates into 312 meters?

The Shard in London is 306 meters, and it has 95 floors.

One forumer mentioned that the most ambitious plan is 312 m, 82 floors in the local version of the dedicate thread.

There are only 73 functional floors in The Shard.

But the long stalled Hermitage Plaza in La Defense Paris is 320m.

Jukkasjärvi: Icehotel 2016

The design of new version of the original Icehotel (Icehotel 2016) was revelead. Custom suites at the 26th Icehotel in the Arctic Circle include a life-sized ice elephant and a recreation of a 1920s cult horror film.
Located near the town of Jukkasjärvi, in Swedish Lapland, the 55-room Icehotel is built annually from ice and snow sourced from a nearby river.
This year's temporary structure opened on 11 December 2015, and includes 19 uniquely crafted Art Suites as well as a bar and a church.
The suites were all created by different artists, working either individually, in pairs or in groups. They include a room full of flying sheep and a 1970s love capsule.

The design concept of the new Apple flagship store in Stockholms region was revealed. The specially designed building will be constructed in Kungsträdgården.

Quote:
One way that the new Stockholm store would be different than the average Apple Store build is that the fact that Apple reportedly plans to also overhaul the surrounding area by rebuilding a fountain and public seating area around the building that could be used by the public full-time even when the store is closed.

This year the UN prize for the Best sustainable city development went to the ongoing project Norra Djurgårdsstaden/Stockholm Royal Seaport in Stockholm. The prize was handed in to the city councillor of Stockholm Municipality Karin Wanngård during the C40 (Cities Climate Leadership Group) Awards event in Paris.
The project was praised for the sustainable solutions applied in planning and construction process which are inspirational for other sustainable city development projects worldwide. Norra Djurgårdsstaden or Stockholm Royal Seaport in English is a large area of central Stockholm that is undergoing brownfield redevelopment.

Is the fur used inside those rooms of the ice hotel real? If so, that is very disappointing.

Karlatornet will be supported by highrises of 40, 35, 27, 16-18 floors. The construction should start no later 2017.
Update:
