A few weeks ago I saw an documentary on Discovery Channel. It's nice to see an update of this amazing great tower.

I think the height is correct. I would prefer higher if it would be built in another place, with another skyscrapers that could make it look not so magic.

I can see TT from the roof of my house (I live 25 kilometres from it). Some years ago I could see Kockumskranen (the old Malmoitian "highrise construction", a former shipyard crane that was 150 metres high). New times, new sights.

Since HSB is a kind of a cooperation (extremly wealthy and mighty though) it´s their members who have paid the price. It now seems though that they´re going to finance it by selling off some of their most valuable estates so they probably won´t be much affected at all.

But anyways, I am glad they built it of course and I am not economicaly affected from it so I just thrive

One of the best for sure.
I think it looks just perfect standing all alone right there, the design is pure genious.

I don't really like how it stands really alone as if out of nowhere, but I do have to say, it's Turning Gooood!
I wonder how cool would it look at night, all lit up!

Did the shops nearby open yet? Last time I was there everything was closed, probably still waiting for completion and more residents in the area.
