The Kaknäs tower (Swedish: Kaknästornet) is a TV tower in Gärdet in Stockholm, Sweden. It has 72 pillars. The tower is a major hub of Swedish television, radio and satellite broadcasts. It was finished in 1967, designed by architect Bengt Lindroos, and the height is 155 metres (509 ft) or 170 metres (560 ft) with the antenna included. For a few years Kaknästornet was the tallest building in the Nordic countries until Näsinneula was opened in Tampere, Finland in 1971. It was surpassed in 2003 by the Kista Science Tower in north Stockholm as the tallest building of Sweden, a mere three meters taller (including the antenna on the roof), which in turn was surpassed by Turning Torso in Malmö in 2005. The tower is owned by the national Swedish broadcasting company Teracom.
