Shouldn't the thread title be changed to 230m+ then?

And "Polstjärnan" instead of karlavagnstornet?

230m Polestar Tower to act as a catalyst for future development in Gothenburg

Quote:
Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) with Copenhagen architects Entasis, and COWI Denmark and COWI Sweden have been announced as winners of an international design competition to conceptualise the tallest building in the Nordic region. The winning design for the Polestar Tower reaches 230m in height.

The competition was initiated by contractor SERNEKE and the City of Gothenburg to generate a residential-led mixed-use skyscraper that would act as a catalyst for future development in the area of Lindholmen. The successful design incorporates flats, loft-style apartments and duplexes with each unit benefiting from its own private balcony.

These residential units will be supported by a lounge, gym and roof deck to be shared by all residents, alongside a public restaurant and observation deck. The skyscraper takes inspiration from ‘ribbons blowing in the wind’ and will be blended into the district with a wider masterplan that integrates ‘a new cluster of taller structures’ to provide context.

A jury comment on the selection of a winner reads: “[This is] an identity-building proposal that takes a smart overall grip on both the skyscraper and urban environment. The proposal integrates the local environment into a whole that allows for a vibrant urban environment. The skyscraper’s distinct identity adds character and vitality to Lindholmen and will be Gothenburg’s new landmark and pride.”

In addition to the main competition proposal, SOM has created plans for a landscaped ring which connects important sites within Gothenburg in light of the city’s 400th anniversary in 2021. This scheme also includes the creation of a new park through the realignment of Lindholmsallén.

Kent Jackson, Design Director at SOM said: “We are very excited to have won this prestigious competition and will be pleased to deliver a great design and city district for the people of Gothenburg.”

Wasn't "Polstjärnan" just a name of the proposal? The proposed height is 230 m., however it may be increased to 250 m. (according to Serneke).

Yea, the name of the propsal who won! And as I wrote before it should stand 230m+ which indicates that it might get higher than 230m!

Malmo started with the spiral design, and Gothenburg is taking it further. Well done Sweden on your trendsetting architecture.

No doubt a certain Mid-Eastern town will follow suit with an over-the-top rip off.

Melbourne, Australia wins the race of using a similar design now.

Thanks for your contribution on our local Melbourne thread dj4life.
As I have mentioned, the SOM / Entasis / COWI design proposed for Gothenburg is much superior in every way to what has been proposed for our town....
Your project design is simply beautiful! Congratulations!
The Melbourne City Council are not very pleased with this design, and we can all tell why. I believe that it is a very poor re-interpretation of the SOM / Entasis /COWI proposal.
To share with your fellow Swedish forumers.....

It seems that Zaha Hadid architects re-mastered their proposal "Svall" to "Grace on Coronation" that is proposed for Brisbane (Australia):

An area of 13 000 sq. m. is now reserved for the skyscraper and the adjacent buildings.

Klart för marken till skyskrapa

Will this become the EUs second tallest building? The shard highest occupied floor is 245m up or something,maybe this will have an even taller occupied floor.

Yes, you are absolutely right. It should be no.2 by height (in meters) and no.1 by the number of occupied floors.
