"Viereiselle tyhjälle tontille rakennetaan kaksi asuinkerrostaloa, joista tulee lähes yhtä korkeita kuin Fortumin torni"

I though these circular towers were going to be taller than the present ones?

The two towers mentioned here are not the same as the four cylindrical towers. These two are right next to the Fortum tower. You can see them in the pictures on the previous page.

More art for Helsinki.

Currently the museum is situated in this building, which will be in use even after the opening of the new museum, for the permanent collections and Amos Anderon's home museum.
