The building really looks great.

But I think it doesn't fit in the surrounding area.

I was quite sceptical about this tower, but since I saw it in person few months ago, it really impressed me. Just amazing!

Its a spectacular building ...From some angels it reminds me of a windsail...

I heard from a friend of mine that another skyscraper was being built in the outskirt of Malmoe ..I think the name of it was "the scandinavian tower" and it was much taller than TT.Anyone know what the present status of that building is ???

^ Unfortunately, the Scandinavian Tower project has been canceled... I think it was because of lack of funding...

@New York Yankee: People will start moving into the Turning Torso in November this year. The crane will be removed sometime in June.

Update
The facade is completed, and the crane will be dismantled next week. The construction-elevator (on the outside of the building) is already on its way down (maybe it's even all gone now?). The two top floors of the building will be conference-rooms, called Torso Meeting. They will be open for conferences in February 2006.

When did the costruction started? I mean when they boarded up the aerea, raised the signboard and started digging the hole for the basements?

@AltinD: The construction/digging officially started on February 14, 2001. The construction of the concrete-foundation started in March 2002 and was completed in August 2002. After that it started to rise above ground (I think )

marka971 posted some awesome pics of Turning Torso in this thread
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=226762



Those external truss things look great but how'd you be if your window looks straight into one of them.

I think Turning Torso will be remembered in the future as one of the great skyscraper designs of this time. I reckon we'll see a lot more buildings with twists in the future - I've already seen a few proposals. Sensational!!!

Actually there is one highrise hotell planned not far from TT, and another highrise is going to be built in the Dockan area which is near TT aswell. And as Nightsky wrote, Kronprinsen is not far from this area. Malmö's waterfront skyline is going to be different in a couple of years. Very cool.
