@Nightsky: Yea, I'm going to Skåne with my family in August, so Malmö is something you really have to see then (we won't live in Malmö though, but in a cotton/cabin quite near Ystad).

Sad we can't see your pics from the bridge, stupid USB connection

This is a great design. I saw this on the discovery channel on how this was built. They was a problem with the steel pipe manufactures since they would now weld in properly. I don't know if they solved the problem. Any way good for sweden.

P.S when you scroll the picture with the mouse up and down the tower actually truns.

Have you seen the picture from Skånemässan in Swedish newspaper Metro? An app. 10m tall flower sculpture of Turning Torso!

@Atlantica C5. I hope the problem with the USB will be solved soon. Noone have managed so far.

Update
One of the two tower-cranes is now being dismantled (as you can see on the webcam). The other one will probably also be dismantled soon. The facade is almost totally completed now, but there are still interior-work to do.

This building is coming along nicely, although it's all alone. This will definately stand out for the years to come.

my favorite euro residential but i've never seen the building plan for the area before.
i always thought there was some willingness to build some more tall building, but future constructions look so leveled.
Is this a definitive overall view of the masterplan or is it likely to change as years pass by?

Will become a nice area I think. Some midrises should fit in well though...

This is one of the better residentials buidlings ever i guess.

The area surrouding it will have a lot of housing but no highrise what so ever by the looks of it. That will make this buidling even better. You get an nice view from every corner.
Why is the building not on the waterside ? (that would make it even better)

It will not be completely lonely. Look at this rendering. It shows the proposed 25-story hotel, almost in the same area. And there are some highrises with 12-15 that is pretty close to Turning Torso. Kronprinsen with 29 floors is not very far either.

Pic by Lars Tufvesson, taken March 19. Note that only one crane is there now.
