Previous first post:

About time to get this thread up and running. As the authorities are rather strict when it comes to tall buildings at the moment,
this thread will be devoted to urban developements, of any kind. New buildings, transportation projects etc. I don't have
the complete overview of what is happening is this city, so any contributions will be highly apretiated (hint, hint Christian ).
I think developements in Fjordcity will remain in its separate thread for now. Maybe I'll merge them one day I am extremely bored.

First out is Waldemars Hage.

Waldemars hage, between Alexander Kiellands square and Grünerlĝkka, will consist of 500 apartments. The buildings
will be on 6-8 floors, with 12 towers with additional 4-5 floors. That means there will be 12 towers with 12 floors.
The two first towers has been erected already, finished last week (planning to walk by there to take some pictures soon).
The first people will move in there in january next year. Architects are Dark Arkitekter A/S, and total estimated costs
is 750 million NOK (~90 million EUR).









Aftenposten took this image today of the developement, in an article where the city conservationist calls it "Waldemar's horror", as expected



The entire project will be very hightech with "smarthouses", and there will be made gardens on the roofs.




A list of today's shopping




Some images of what the interior will be like:






___________________________________________________________

Okay, while I am at it, let me continue on a project that is also mentioned in the article in Aftenposten. Critisized by
the cityconservationist of beeing "neo-brutalism"(Just like sOme of us like it ).

Jess Carlsenkvartalet

Another apartment-project, involving the entire quartal. A total of 205 apartments is beeing built here,
between Grünerlĝkka and city centre. Construction started this winter, and first parts of the quartal should be
finished by now. The entire project will be finished next summer. I showed you some early photos of it this spring,
as some may remember. The tallest building will be 11 floors.

This is how it looks now, as Aftenposten photograped it

Oslo bus company tries out busses on gas



AS Sporveisbussene, the city-bus company, are starting to try out busses that run on comprimated natural gas(CNG) these days. The probation-period will last for 2 months. They want to replace 300 of their diesel-run busses. A CNG bus emmits only 20% NOx of a diesel-bus, and the noise-level, both external and internal will be considerably reduced. 38 of these buses are already operating with success in Bergen, and they are in use in both Gothenburg and Malmĝ aswell. Stockholm have also started a test-project.

For the time beeing, these buses are not economically viable and needs some some govermental support, but hope is that more research will make it cheaper.

*I have plans to inform you of several more apartment- and transportation projects, but for the time beeing, my time is limited*

Oh, wow. I know that box haters may not like these projects, but I like them. They're very Nordic. I especially like the Keysers gate 13.

Arvid, how much money do you need from me so that you would take loads of pictures of your nice Radisson Plaza?

Wow! Nice projects you have there
Is it just me, or does the Keysers gate 13/Borgarting lagmannsrett tower looks at least a bit like Itämerentori? Style seems to be similar.

I like the Ringnes Park project the most. I'm not really a fan of this type of buildings, but if they're in one place together, then it looks good. It'll probably be a very comfy place to live.

Wow, Christian nice work!! You bring up many interesting projects I have not seen the plans for Alna before, but that area certainly need some brushing up. Alna is a car based area, with lots of large shoppingcentres, IKEA etc, and is becoming a more and more important area, but it looks rather sad. The Alna river (probably the one seen in the renderings) is planned to become nice park.

Just a minor correction; it's Bĝler senter, not Bĝlern My mothers uncle and aunt will move in there, hehe.

Additional info: Ringes Park is located just a few hundred meters from Waldemars Hage, on the other side of Akers river.

We'll talk more later

Wow!!!! Just noticed this thread!!! (I think that our forum with these threads will make competition to some immobilities information companies

Besides regret for lack of highrises (but you, guys, may be expected this and are ready to hit anyone repeating this)... I like this architecture. It is minimalistic, asketic and tasty. My favourite:


Regarding the gas - gas-run cars and buses were popular here in 1990ies. I knew some people who had their cars on gas. Have been driving one Honda Accord (made in 1980ies), running on gas. All the time there was a little smell in the car, which warned me - better do not light a match near this car... although no accidents with fire have been reported. Today it is not popular anymore here, I do not know why. Biofuel - that's the new trend here!
