Polstjärnan proposed by S.O.M. architects (USA) was chosen as the winning proposal. The proposed height of the skyscraper is 230 m., however the developer of the project (Serneke AB) expressed a will to increase the height to 250 m. instead.
S.O.M. are the famous architects that are known for the projects such as Sears Tower (Chcago, USA) or Burj Khalifa (Dubai, JAE).

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

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.”

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.

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

A new promotional video with views over Gothenburg from a 266 m height (75 fl.):


The official height is 266 m., 75 fl. However, due to a huge interest in this project, a more ambitious plan with heigh of 310 m., 83 fl. was suggested. Then, Karlatornet would become the next tallest skyscraper in the EU.

The planners and the innitator 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. :banana:
