Arkitekt Sven Wallander föreslog 1915 att Kungsgatans östra del skulle få en enhetlig hushöjd med två "skyskrapare" i korsningen vid Malmskillnadsgatan. Denna idé fastställdes i stadsplan 1919. Norra Kungstornet stod efter hans ritningar färdigt 1924. Högst upp låg en tid natt-klubben Blue Heaven och senare fotografen K W Gullers arbetsplats. Södra Kungs-tornet, ritat av arkitekt Ivar Callmander, stod färdigt 1925. I översta våningen låg förr Restaurant Pagod.



The North Tower, completed in 1924, was designed by architect Sven Wallander. The South Tower is from 1925 and was designed by architect Ivar Callmander.

[English translation of Swedish text:]
In 1915, architect Sven Wallander proposed that the eastern part of Kungsgatan would have two "skyscrapers" of equal height at its intersection with Malmskillnadsgatan. This proposal was accepted in 1919. The Northern King's Tower was completed in 1924. The night club "Blue Heaven", and later the workplace of photographer K. W. Gullers occupied the top floor. The Southern King's Tower, designed by architect Ivar Callmander, was completed in 1925. "Restaurant Pagod" was on the top floor.
