Stockholm, the capital and largest city in Sweden, sits on 14 islands in the extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. The city is beautifully decorated with more than fifty bridges and sightseeing boats and passenger ferries. Currently, the city has over 100 construction that are either ongoing or planned. These projects are being done with the city dwellers in mind and are supposed to meet their current and future needs.
Below are some of city’s explosive development plans:
Stockholm One is an office and administrative tower that is set to be completed in 2020. Once completed, the skyscraper will confirm Stockholm as the home of technological innovations as many fintech companies that can be found here and the city is attracting around one-fifth of Europe’s total fintech investments. The skyscraper sits in the former harbor area and will transform it into an ecological district of Hammarby Sjöstad. The ambitious project comprises of a 100 meter tower and another 25 meter low-rising building. Stockholm will provide flexible office space that benefits from long-distance city views and an abundance of daylight.
Norra Tornen (North Towers)
Norra Torne, which means North Towers in English are two skyscrapers that are under development in Stockholm. The towers are located in the Vasastaden district of Stockholm. The 125 meters eastern tower has 36 stories and was opened in 2018 while the 110 meters western tower, which has 36 stories, will be completed in 2020. The whole complex, once completed, will have 300 residential units. The residential towers were, at some point, criticised for their height.
These are among the ambitious projects Stockholm that are set to be completed in 2020. There are many other projects that were either completed this year, or which will be completed in two or more years, such are the Stockholm Bypass.
