Indeed. Several more mid-rises are planned to be constructed in the future. Hopefully, the city will have a nice cluster. :)

For its size it's got a very pretty skyline, and the buildings in the first picture look really good. Have you got any street-level pictures?

Skrapan ('First Hotel Plaza') is a 81 m. tall highrise building built from 1988 to 1990. It is the only skyscraper in the city that has a skybar with the view towards lake Mälaren. After the construction this building was the third tallest in Sweden, however nowadays it is 6th. :)

Even though the building doesn't look very pretty, it has a significant impact on the skyline of the city.
