I was wondering, how do people cope with the size difference of these buildings compared to the rest of the city? They look really massive visually on the pictures with the low-rise around it. Are/were there many protests or are people actually realizing that something has to be done with the current lot values?

There was massive protests* against the row of "highrises" in the background/on the other side of the street to this development, but there have not been any public opposition to this Bispevika development in itself. The only opposition I've seen come from our national heritage authorities who argued that the area surrounding the canal needed to be wider in order to preserve the sight lines from the park on the other side of the lake to the medieval fortress.

But I also think the picture might fool you a little. While it is true that this district will become denser than some places in the city, the buildings will actually be of comparable heights to Oslos developments from the '30 (like this) and it probably won't be that much higher than some of the cities buildings from the turn of the century either (like this).

* Not in as people took to the street, but many at least wrote reader comments to newspapers and there was some petitions against it.

Renderings. These buildings will have a facade in wood and slate.

Excellent presentation Galro. I'm fascinated by this project for a number of reasons.

Two questions if you don't mind. Firstly, what are the main outer surface materials for most of the buildings: wood and slate and what does Eufemias Plass mean, if anything?

1. I'm not sure if there is a single main material. The office building at corner between Dronning Eufemias gate and Kong Håkon 5.s gate will be clad in bricks, the Eufemias Plass building will be clad in natural stone and the buildings above will have a facade of slate and wood as mentioned. I'm unsure about the rest and I'm not sure it have been decided for all buildings yet either.

2. Eufemias Plass simple means Eufemias Square and it is named after Eufemia av Rügen who was a queen consort in Norway in the 13th century.

Trams have now starting to go down Dronning Eufemias gate (which will serve Bispevika), so here is a picture of that with the development in the background taken by me yesterday.
