Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) won the competition to design what will be the tallest building in Scandinavia: Polstjärnan (the Polestar Tower) in Gothenburg, Sweden, will top out at just under 755 feet tall.
SOM is working with Copenhagen, Denmark–based firm Entasis and consulting group COWI. An observation deck will top the residential tower, which will also include a public restaurant. The project also involves a master plan for a 1.5 million square foot mixed-use surrounding neighborhood. The tower is expected to be completed by 2019.
