Sadly, most of the projects in Oslo, and whereever else in Norway is projects with buildings under 12 floors, the buildings over 12 floors is usally quite secret, and there is impassible to find any information or images from them. I will try to post as many project as passible with buildings over 12 floors, but most larger interesting projects in Oslo contents buildings under 12 floors.

I completely agree! And there must be a nice backyard, ofcourse

About Sjĝlyststranda: sad that the NIMBYS managed to reduce that tower from 25 (or 20?) floors to 12. I remember my first exitement when I read about this project some years ago. BTW. my train to work go by the construction site everyday...I may have to hop off there one day

About Breivoll: I have never seen Breivoll project, and didn't even know where Breivoll was until I searched it up now.

About Solsiden: Wow, awesome. This project lies in Nydalen, right next to the gargantual new Nydalen BI (school of economics). In Nydalen, so much is happening/has happened the last couple of years, that it probably deserves a separate thread! About every building seen on that map(http://cache.finn.no/mmo/4502434_solsiden_copy.jpg) is eighter renovated or recently built, and there is probably more to come. Nydalen has become the IT-powerhouse of Oslo (and hence also Norway)

Yeah, I have a feeling that despite city council setting an upper limit on 12 floors, that some projects will go ahead in silence with more than 12 floors. In the case of Bjĝrvika, the city council managed to set no upper limit whatsoever in their final decition, without it making any fuzz at all....lets just hope it remains this way

Well, the new 2 line (one of 4 "stamlinjer" in the Inner City) is only those busses, so it's more than just testing. btw - we've got the exact same make of those busses (ours are all blue tho).

Yeah, basically, most new residential projects are innfills. That's because most projects are very centrally located, within say 4km from the central station. The entrapeneurs don't want to erect anything that is too far away from the city centre, because of relatively bad prices there and high construction costs.

While infills certainly are a good thing, I think sometimes that it's getting too much. Many of these projects are on former playgrounds and parks, because there are no other places to build so central. Sooner or later the politicians in this city will wake up and realize that all the playgrounds are gone and the only way is up!

It was interesting to read this... Riga and Oslo are in very different stages of development level but we have exactly the same discussion and several protest actions. In some cases people managed to stop the building in their courtyards, but in most - not.

Regarding the height limits set by city council - anywhere in the world they seem to be "forgotten" from time to time.

More than 3 000 new dwellings in Oslo

Statistics Norway, 23 aug. 2004.

3 163 dwelling starts are registered in Oslo during the first half of 2004. This is more than three times as many as during the first six months of 2003.

13 843 dwellings are registered started in Norway during the first six months of 2004 - an increase of 29.9 per cent compared with the same period last year.

In June 2004, 3 537 dwellings were started, 1 400 of these in Oslo.

During the first six months of 2004 almost 1.8 billion square metres of utility floor space were started for other purposes than dwellings. Compared with the same period last year this is a decrease of 19.5 per cent.

The total square metres of utility floor space starts rose by 18.3 per cent in the first half of 2004 compared with the same period last year.





Edit: those graphs show the statistics for all of Norway.

You do a great job on this thread Christian. I had many of these projects on my plan, but I'm grateful that you have taken time to present them instead! Keep up the good work Really, because I have limited time on my hand

About Elvebredden; nice project, not because of the architecture, but because of the location along the Aker river. It's located on the same side of the river as Rignes Park, only a few hundred meters longer up.

Pilestredet Park
Oslo city centre

This very centrally located apartment project has been under construction/rebuilding for a while, and will be finished in 1'st quartal of 2006. Total amounts of apartments on this former national hospital site will be 650, 500 of wich is sold already. I'm not sure of the floorcount here, but I count up to 13. The apartments are made so that energy consumption will be low, and controlled. There will be parks on the roofs accessible to all the residents.


















This map shows how central the project is..no wonder the apartments are expencive as h***, and easy to sell..



The view

Ok, still im blaming my self!!, i will try to go more carefully ahead next time.

Pilestredet Park is a great project, its really nice to see old industrial and hospital buildings change into a modern residential complex. Many of the buildings in the complex are quite well, though i could see Rikstrygdeverkets Hovedkvarter's building even nicer.


Rikstrygdeverkets, looks quite modern and nice here, but the facade to the building didn't became my favorite.

Marienlyst Park
Majorstua - oslo inner west

255 apartments in 5 buildings on up to 8 floors, located at Marienlyst, next to NRK (the national TV broadcaster), close to popular Majorstua. Construction started may 2002, first residents moved in november last year. The entire project will be finished november this year.

The most important condition that the architects (Lund Hagem Arkitekter AS) had to follow, was that the area would maintain the characteristics of the 30'ies architecture of the area, but adapted to our times.

The layout of the blocks look very much like those in the area built in the 30'ies.
















The location


It may look rather dull, but it was one of nine nominees for the goverment's architecture-award of 2004. 80 project was in the competition.

When i first saw Marenlyst Park rederings i trought it would become quite nice project. But im not sure i like the finall result or the result so far, it became quite boring, and i don't like the contrasts between the dark windows and glass and the white walls.

A few smaller projects:

Grüner garden - Inside Oslo
Günerlĝkka - inner east

A former officebuilding along the Aker river is beeing rebuilt into 107 apartments these days. The apartments are very small, designed to attract young people between 18 and 35, and focus alot on beeing very urban. Unfortunately, it's very hard to find any pictures of the building, but it's on 8 floors, and built somewhere in the late 30'ies I guess in red bricks. It was the municipal building of Aker municipal until it was merged with Oslo in 1948.

This is was the only one I found..


The only drawing I found


People standing in line to see the apartments, at night


They advertise with this very fine view



Baglerbyen
Oldtown- inner east

Yet another centrally located project consisting of 290 apartments. The apartments are relatively cheap, so the first part of the project, 65 apartments, was sold out immediately. The project is designed to fit into the existing wooden houses in the area, hence very low for the most part.





Sogn terrasse
Western Oslo

167 apartments is beeing built here, right next to the preserved forest Nordmarka. 6 buildings on 7 and 8 floors. Construction started spring 2003 and will finish late next year. IMO, this project look a tad boring, looks so 1992.










Surroundings


More to come...
