I have my doubts but the homesite is still there and SSM has a link and a picture of it in their main page of the website and they say that they want to start the construction 2008 and reach a construction end during 2010. It will be about 200m, have 67 floors, 350 apartments and cost about 700-800 million Swedish kronors according to SSM. They haven't decided the prices of the apartments yet. It's located at Telefonplan 3km south of Södermalm and about 6km south west of the central train station.

This is just a vision, it's not even proposed from what I have heard... :p

I haven't heard anything for a long while now either. It got that initial media-blitz, but that was it :(

I really like the design though and think Telefonplan could be a great place for a real scraper with the areas already in progress densification and urbanisation - and the proposed over-decking of the subway station and resulting further densification and urbanisation.

I agree, the design sucks, but great with the height, the location sucks too in my opinion...

I actually kinda like the design. Sleek, simple and the way the facade is more and more window-y the higher you get... works for me! :)

So is this a vision or a proposal? Because if visions gets up here as real proposals i know of a few other cool projects which should be mentioned in its own thread here. But thats wrong, so i won't mention them in this section.

Anyway, sleek and simple design, could actually look good, but not in sthml, so i won't cry out loud if it gets rejected, or just die.

It's a vision and a proposal. They don't employ Gerth Wingårdh for a pure fantasy project. How likely it is to get built is another issue. I don't think anybody here can be the judge of that.

So our insider in the biz ;) says it has been killed? so be it :(

As usual nothing about this has been heard in the media. You'd think DN and others would boast about having killed another project (even if it wasn't really them).

Looks like Tell-us tower is still alive (or not yet dead) according to this article:
http://www.dn.se/DNet/jsp/polopoly.jsp?a=710632

A translated extract of the text: "We will probably see more landmarks getting built, one of these is the 200 metres tower at Telefonplan (Tell-us tower)".

So, I guess only time will TELL if we will see TELL-us tower completed :clown:

A member of the "Stockholm är inte Bullerbyn"-Facebook group poasted this, a reply he got from the developers behind Tell Us Tower:
Hej!

SSM presenterade sitt skyskrape-projekt “Tell Us Tower” våren 2006, och
idén väckte stor uppmärksamhet i press, radio och TV med ett hundratal
artiklar och inslag.

SSM har löpande därefter haft en dialog med kringboende och andra kommun-
invånare om projektet, och mött i huvudsak ett stort intresse och positiv
respons. Likaså har det varit ett positivt mottagande hos såväl politiker som
många ledande tjänstemän i Stockholm Stad.

Ett projekt av den här karaktären är mycket komplicerat och problemen
mångfacetterade, som t.ex trafikföring, normer för buller och luftkvalitet, samt stadsplanering och konstruktion. Det har efter ett och ett halvt års utredande visat sig att tiden fram till en färdig detaljplan och bygglov blir alltför lång, vilket innebär att SSM beslutat att utveckla en annan intressant bostadsbyggnad med god och spännande arkitektur på sitt markområde.

SSM har idag 166 bostadsrätter under produktion i Telefonplansområdet, och
samtliga är sålda innan färdigställandet. Ytterligare två etapper om totalt 100
bostadsrätter börjar inom kort att byggas.

Alla de som hört av sig och velat teckna sig för en bostadsrätt i Tell Us Tower är välkomna att kontakta SSM för information om de kommande spännande projekten som alla kommer att innehålla någon extra kvalitet.



Med vänliga hälsningar

Bascially: they got plenty of attention at first and the reactions were mostly positive. But the planning/beurocracy surrounding the project got to much, so the proposal died after about 1½ years working on it.
Status: Canceled.
