Totally Amazing that this got pushed up to almost Supertall

Hopefully Norway will wake up later too XD

Sweden is without question the best country for highrises and skyscrapers in Scandinavia now

Sexy tower!

At last some more height for Nordic skyscrapers, that highrise area looks like a nice addition to the city.

According to the latest information, the height of the building should be 265 m./75 floors. Nowadays the detailed plan for whole the area is being prepared and the construction phase should start next year.

Rumours: the height may be increased to 310 m/82 fl. In that case we are talking about the highest tower in the EU.

What's the official height of The Shard? I read that was 304 m, 309 or 310 m...
However a supertall in such a "small" town would be incredible for european standards.

Well, Gothenburg is not a very small city. Especially, if we count the metro area. Morevoer, the population growth is quite fast. Plus, people are intrerested in new development and are actively participating in the planning process of the future city center which will make the city more attractive and less industry-oriented.

Karlatornet: 500 apartments and a hotel with a restaurant (up to 12th floor),
Karlavagnstplatsen (whole area): 2000 apartments, mixed-use space.

The final height of the skyscraper will depend on the market interest, but it should be no less than 230 m. high. There is an interest to construct a 265 m, 75 fl. high skyscraper and, so far, the interest for apartments in Karlatornet was big.

The official name is Karlatornet!

As the sales process of the apartments started, an official webpage dedicated for this project has been launched. Some pictures with views over Gothenburg to be seen from various levels in 'Karlatornet' are published in the website:

According to Fredrik Eklund one of the two brokers for Karlatornet they recieved 3000(!) buyer registrations for the 550 apartments within 72 hours after they released them for the public.

Source : Mr Eklund himself (or atleast his facebook page)
This is fantastic news

The great majority of these units should be quite easily shifted given the price range and the general demand, it's quite easy to sell apartments right now, most projects I've kept track on has all been sold out fast the last couple of years, this should not be an exception, the 4 penthouse apartments will be quite expensive though, maybe upwards 40 million. I think Ola will grab one of those for himself though.

I'm quite happy with my current place, but will probably register, need to convince my girlfriend though, easier said then done.

I read in the sales material "Karlatornet kommer för alltid att förändra konturen av både Göteborg och Sverige och göra det enklare för människor att hitta hem". Agree, you really have to be drunk to miss that one. A big congrats. It is very cool.

I wish this one next to TT

Serneke, the developer behind this project, recently acquired the last piece of land.

(google translate)
Quote:
Serneke bought and taken a further property on Lindholmen in Gothenburg. The acquisition of 5360 square meters of existing office space, means that an important piece of the puzzle has fallen into place for the construction of Scandinavia's tallest building, Karla Tower.

At the end of last year acquired Serneke property and business Zinken Weland in Lindholmen. The acquisition was crucial to be able to ask for land in the area for the construction of the skyscraper Karla Tower and the new district around Karla Trolley Square. Serneke have now bought the property Lindholmen 1:13, a surface on which in the present situation there are offices.
- This was the last acquisition we needed to do before we can start creating a whole in the vision of a true mixed city in Lindholmen, says Ola Serneke, CEO Serneke Group and initiator of the Big Tower.

The land is part of the new zoning plan made about Karla Tower. In Sernekes house will be built in total about 2,000 apartments and more than 100 000 square meters of commercial space. Construction will be a guide to how a true mixed city created with high density, but with lush gardens on the roofs of various levels and with vibrant surfaces at ground level.
