COWI constructs the foundation for Karlavagnsplatsen

Published: Wed, 2015-09-23 09: 25
Commissioned by Serneke
Karlavagnsplatsen will become a dynamic urban area of ​​Gothenburg which, among other things, include the Nordic region's tallest building. The aim of the site is to create a dense and attractive mixed use district with apartments, offices, shops, restaurants, medical center, school and more. COWI has been commissioned by Serneke to construct the foundation and parking garage for Karlavagnsplatsen.

The square at Karlavagnsplatsen at Lindholmen in Gothenburg, will get a single building under ground with garage and installation spaces in two levels. In addition to the Nordic region's tallest building the area will consist of various blocks of buildings up to 32 floors.

In 2014 COWI, together with architectural firms Entasis and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) was part of the winning team in the architectural competition for Karlavagnsplatsen. The purpose of the competition was to develop a masterplan for a multi-block area containing high-rise buildings with a skyscraper as a landmark that would be at least 200 meters high, thus making it the Nordic region's tallest building. The tower is now planned to be 266 meters high and has been named Karlatornet.

COWI has now been commissioned by Serneke to project application stage for foundation, basement and terrace / street joists of the area on two levels. The surface of the basement is in each level almost 30 000 square meters.

- This is a complex and interesting project where our expertise and many years of combined experience comes in handy, says Magnus Nilber, chief at The Department of Building Technology in Gothenburg for COWI.

However, it is not COWI that will project planning of the skyscraper Karlatornet. That prestigious task has gone to the VKB, which then construct towers, cellar under the tower and foundation for the tower, in collaboration with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM).

I know most of you like this building but I just can't "learn" to like it. That twist in the center just does not work for me. But still, having such a tall tower in such a small city will be awesome.

The planners and the innitiator of the project go for the most ambitious plan: 82 floors and 312 meters which will make it the highest tower in whole the EU by any means of measurement. Karlatornet will be supported by highrises of 40, 35, 27, 16-18 floors. The construction should start no later 2017.

Here is a recent public presentation at "Älvrummet", a public arena run by the city, for the development of the city. They have lunch presentations on a regular basis(but one can drop in at other times as well, during opening hours), and this time it was for Karlavagnsplatsen and the tower. The developer(Serneke Group), the city architect and planers involved in this project talks about the project and does a Q&A.

It is in Swedish. But at 13:00 one can see the plan layout for this particular area.
Quote:
Published December 2 2015
Karlavagnsplatsen development at Lindholmen means that our city continues to grow north of the Gota River. From here you will also be able to see the whole of Gothenburg from a point. Northern Europe's highest building, Karlatornet, will be built and this is enabled on Hisingen, in time for the city's 400th anniversary in 2021.

Karlavagnsplatsen will be developed with high density, proximity of housing, businesses and services which will contribute to a new and exciting urbanity on Hisingen. The area has great potential to become an attractive part of Gothenburg and the goal is a sustainable and vibrant neighborhood.

During the lunch the people involved in the development talks about the area's future design and the complex planning.
Location and time:
Älvrummet, Gothenburg, between 12:15 to 12:45 on December 2nd

Where did you get this information from? I can't seem to find anything about it. 312m would be absolutely incredible! But I also feel that pushing the height will also increase the resentment against it... No matter the final height, i'm still in love with this project

Please, see the video posted above (from minute 13:00) or read the local thread for more information. There were some speculations about such height earlier.

^ Looks very vital and urban. Cozy. Even though rather modernist in architecture, it got alternating and differentiated facades and urban life ingrained. The renders help a lot, of course.

Congrat Göteborg, also for the tower! How likely is it at this point it will actually get built?

I can't say there is much speaking against it. Price per m2 in new built houses, is around 50-60 KSEK in locations like this now. The supply side has been lagging behind since the 90s in Sweden, there is a great need of new housing units on the market. Total cost for Turning Torso in Malmö was around 1,9 bn SEK.

Same goes for office space(and hotels) really, particularly in Gothenburg, where vacancy rates in new modern office buildings is the lowest in the Nordic Region.



The planing process in this country is bloody slow though, this will probably be out on "samråd" before the new year, which takes about 2-3 months, then you got about 4 more steps before you can actually start the construction, so I would guess that construction is likely to start around Q4 2016 or Q1 2017.

The city and the planing office has seen a real turnaround in the attitude towards higher buildings, there are several taller buildings in the pipeline, so thats not an issue either.

Ola Serneke is a doer and go-getter, he gets stuff done and he is passionate about this project(plans to grab one of the penthouses up top for himself).

There is the conservative nimbys(grumpy old men, and the odd treehugging lady), but at best, all they can really hope for is to delay the construction. Not stop it.

The project is coming along, Serneke sold the building rights for 300 apartment units.

Quote:
2015-12-30



Serneke sell building rights for rental apartments in the new district Karlastaden at Lindholmen in Gothenburg for SEK 150 million to property manager Robert Dickson's foundation. In connection with the deal a contract was signed on construction works of the project of just over SEK 300 million.

The sales of building rights of approximately 21 000 square meters is the second property transaction in a short time for Serneke in the new district Karlastaden. The district, developed by Serneke, is a condensed mixed city of around ten blocks containing 2,000 homes, hotels, offices, retail and services. In the construction works that Serneke will perform includes approximately 300 units of rental apartments. Robert Dickson's Foundation gain access to the property immediately.

- We are extremely pleased to sell the development rights to Robert Dickson's foundation, they are one of the few property owners who focus on just owning and managing rental properties. The sale ensures that approximately 300 rental units are included in the upwards of 2,000 homes planned in the new district, says Ola Serneke, CEO Serneke Group.

Robert Dickson's Foundation has since 1850 specialized in renting out apartments that are primarily intended for people with low incomes. The foundation owns and manages over 1,000 residential apartments in the city of Gothenburg.

- Cooperation with Serneke is another step in our long-term work. The Foundation is very pleased that the agreement is complete. The agreement creates the opportunity for more rental flats at reasonable rents in Gothenburg which is rare in the current market situation, says Mikael Jansson, President Robert Dickson's foundation.

The project also includes a social commitment, which means that 5 to 10 unemployed young people will be employed during the construction phase as apprentices, later after completion of apprenticeship they will have the option to seek permanent employment. Moreover, the young people are given the opportunity to gain access to their own apartment by the Foundation after completing their education.

Serneke has sold a property at Karlastaden in Gothenburg to Hemsö, for SEK 96 million. In connection with the transaction they also signed an agreement for the construction of the health and education house to be built on the site. Serneke will take responsibility for everything from design to the finished building, a contract that is worth approximately SEK 300 million.

The new district Karlastaden at Lindholmen in Gothenburg is being developed by Serneke and will become a dense mixed city consisting of about ten blocks with up to 2,000 homes, hotels, offices, retail and services. Karlastaden is most famous for its future skyscraper, The Karla Tower which will be developed by The Serneke Group. The Health and education house is an important part of the site and the property will primarily house tenants in health care and education. The property has an additional leasable area of ​​approximately 12,000 square meters, the project is expected to begin in the autumn in 2016.

- We have seen considerable interest from both companies, private individuals, businesses and investors to be part of Karlastaden. Hemsö is a long-term owner and manager of community properties which makes us feel very satisfied that they become owners of this property. The district will become an area with a higher population density than most innercity districts in Europe and the content will be something peculiar, says Ola Serneke, CEO Serneke Group.

- Gothenburg is an expansive city with interesting plans for the future. We at Hemsö are delighted to be part of this development, says Hemsö CEO Per Berggren.

Exellent tower, and even better street level design. A thing i think many projects nowadays are missing. What i can see from the renders, is that it not only makes a bold statement on the skyline, but also has impact to streetlife.
