The planning documents should be available for the public on the 3rd of feb. There will also be architecture competitions for the 2 tallest highrises. Construction of the tower is probably going to start Q2, I would guess, given how the process is.

No,typo, meant Q3. haha

But, thats me being a little bit of an optimist, it all depends on the sale process obviously. But the plans should have legal backing by Q3.

Sweden is Sweden. Construction will probably start in 10 years or so.

Tired of all swedish bureaucracy. Some money under the table and we could start tomorrow.

hehe, yeah it can be tiresome!

But at most, if the nimbys get involved(which is far from certain, since it's not a nimby dense area), I would say a year after the process is done.

Samråd starts 3rd of feb and lasts until the 15th of march. After the samråd, a samråds document is produced, Then, you have the "granskningsprocess", which lasts for about 3 weeks, this is when people have to submit their writen opinions on the final draft, then it's about 2 more weeks before the process is done.

So, it should be done around the end of April/start of may. Thats when construction can begin, but it's not likely that they are ready that early, since it takes some time to get started, so Q3, seems likely.

Here is a pdf of the planning documents

According to the planning document, the earliest start is Q1, 2017. I personally think that is too optimistic... but who knows?

GOTEBORG | Karlatornet | 266m | 873ft | 64 fl | Pro

Karlatornet, a new landmark in Scandinavia, by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

Imagine a place that no one has ever experienced. 30, 50 or 266 meters above the city. Where you wake up to the most spectacular view over the harbour of Gothenburg. Here you will find top-modern apartments of the highest quality. There is something for everyone. Apartments for singles, couples and large families. Mingle on the roof-top terrace, hang out in the hotel bar or step right out into the busy street life to find shopping, restaurants in the new urban district of Gothenburg. Welcome up to Karlatornet!


The tower is a unique building designed by the renowned architectural practice of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, which has designed some of the highest buildings in the world.

Karlatornet will become part of the new district being built at Lindholmen. The tower will be completed in 2019 and the whole of the new district – with its 10 blocks of residential, office and retail space – will be ready in time for Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary in 2021. Ultramodern apartments are being created here for singles and couples, and for families large and small. The aim is to create a brand new modern district full of life.

Congrats!

Great! That is a very cool design. Also well thought of at street level.

This thread should be closed. There is already another discussion regarding this tower...

^ What are you even talking about? This is the only thread about Karlatornet in the global forum.

Anyway, I'm excited for this tower. After Lakhta Tower, it'll be #2 on the Baltic Sea coast. Exciting times and a boom building up for this region that almost seemed to become slowly forgotten (on the global stage at least)!

Until yesterday evening there was another thread in this section: GOTHENBURG | Karlatornet | 265m | 75fl | App
That's what I'm talking about.
EDIT: I have just found out that the two threads have been incorporated.

This could be an instant landmark for Göteborg, like the Turning Torso was for Malmö.

Gothenburg is not located on the baltic coast,it would however be the tallest or one of the tallest building on the european atlantic coast(depending if you count London as a coastal or inland city).

Well through my Southern Baltic lense, the Kattegat still belongs to the Baltic realm.
I definitely don't perceive it as being part of the Atlantic/North Sea. Swedes might feel different about it.

Anyway, it'll definitely be among the most impressive coastal towers in Europe. I'd like to see actual skyline clusters along some metropolis/bigger city waterfronts on European coasts become a reality, like Petersburg, Gothenburg, Malmö, Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki, the Baltic capitals, Gdynia/Gdansk, Bilbao, Marseille, Le Havre, Porto, The Hague, Calais, Brighton, Burgas, Kiel, Bremerhaven, Rostock... There's plenty of options.
