Gothenburg will have its first real skyscraper which also will become the tallest building in Scandinavia.

The vision of an open mixed city is important. A modern Gothenburg needs it more than ever. What separates this vision from many other visions concerning similar projects is that this time the hand will leave the drawing board, grab a shovel and stir up construction dust. When we are done, Karlastaden will be an attractive, mixed district which is crowned by a tower that stretches 245 meters up in the air. Simply because sometimes the smartest way to build is to build high. The view comes as a bonus - the observation deck will namely be open and accessible to the public all year round.
