Twisting torso is my favourite in Europe. I have been to the construction site several times. Last time I heard architects saying that there seems to be a serious problem. Because of the shape the wind creates a horrible sound: kind of loud whisteling sounds around the angles of the upper floors. You couldn't possibly have a good night sleep. Have you heard about it?

I believe there is a law in Sweden that says you can't combine appartments for sale and appartments for rent in the same building, and there weren't enough interested byers for these appartments, so I think it's decided that there will be for rental only in Turning Torso.
Maybe someone from Sweden can correct me if I'm wrong

@Wildchild: TT was first about to be condos, but since the interest wasn't big enough it's now rentals. The montly rent for 1½ room on floor 15 (lowest residential floor) is around US$700, and 5 rooms on the highest residential floor (floor 53 iirc) cost around US$3500/month

@Van der Rohe: The only planned highrise right now near TT is a hotel with 19 floors, but it will be located almost a km away. So no, no tall buildings are planned in it's immediate area.
