Nordre Gate by Alliance Arkitekter. It was just approved. It will actually be constructed in wood despite its appearance.

The current situation can be seen here: https://www.google.no/maps/@59.92105...8i6656!6m1!1e1

While that is said I do agree that there is a potential at Vaterland too, as not only are there two other highrises already there (and a proposed third one) but the area is also completely failure of urban planning as it is. The issue is that there is quite a lot opposition to new highrises there - both because it blocks the view fro many that lives in the neighborhoods behind and because it will be visible for everyone and anyone who uses the central parts of the city, meaning there will be lots of people with opinion on it.

Thanks for the pics and for detailing the history. I have seen the pics before, yes, but it´s long ago.

When I said "city center", I actually meant that in a strict sense, close to that defined by the following map:



I added some to the map: The red fields are the two proper highrises existing today (having defined Oslo`s "skyline" for 25 years - that`s turning boring). Green is the plot in question. Blue are concrete proposals, which however are stalled. Orange mark spots where architectural think-thanks have modelled highrises, while that orange spot outside of the central area is my idea of a spot where an uninteresting Plattenbau-bygning housing a parkinghouse could be replaced by a new highrise. Nine towers to invent Oslo.

About the Vaterland area, by the way (the name sounds completely ridicilous to anyone german speaking - litterary meaning "fatherland"), you are right. This is why I also think it`s the best place to develop Oslo skyline.

In that case I agree that that is only place with a realistic potential for a skyline, something I personally think is a good thing as I think it would look very messy highrises all over the place. I don't think it is fair to call both the proposed highrises stalled though. The Lilletorget project have just been launched and they are also working on the Krystallklar project but they have admittedly been very slow at it. I don't know if you are aware but there are also plans to extend Postgirobygget and Oslo Plaza as well as building a high-ish tower as part of the re-development scheme of the central station.

Infill in Thereses Gate 30. It's currently under construction. I went past it this week and it have started rising but I did not take any pictures nor I have found any online.

This building have been completed. The partial wooden facade was dropped at some point which I think left the building looking quite cold and uninviting.

I think it is the reflection in the aluminium facade which gives it a certain unnatural glow to it in those pictures.

There is a proposal to replace this hideous once brutalistic but now postmodern highrise in Pilestredet 33 with a rather bland building of similar height.



Proposed replacement:

In my opinion, this last one looks great ! Of course, it will depend on the quality of materials and detail, but from what I can see, it will make this site a huge improvement

It will definitely be a huge improvement to the area, no doubt about it, but don't think it is unfair to categorize the design as rather bland. Still I much prefer bland over almost offensively ugly, especially when it is inside the inner city like this is.

So what you say is that there are good chances for this one ?!
I´ll take the job to make a new exposure of it, then:

This is the plot today


This is a crude illustration, not the proposed design, but gives an overview of the area.


My favourite design thus far.



View from the north east.

Yes, this project has been in circulation for a long time. The last time I got an update, the delay was due to the future needs of the main bus terminal.

This is the bus station today:


This was last the favoured, future plan.


Since the plan was not sure, the plot wherethe Krystallklar tower is proposed was needed as a backup plan for the bus station. Since it is an important infrastructural element, the need trumps others interests.


It would do great things for the skyline, so a rapid clarification would be the best for all interests.

I would say it is pretty much guaranteed to be built. The planning authorities even produced a 27 floor proposal of their own (although I believe it was thinner) so they are not opposed to the height and I can't see why anyone else would be either.

I don't think the design chosen is particularly good looking though but then again I did not really like many of the competing designs I saw.

They re-started the process late last year and the plan was put out on public hearing this March. The current plan is for a higher and slimmer tower than what your renders show (which is the old design). I have not been able to find any good renders of the new design but the plan is available here if you can read Norwegian:

Urban development proposed in Sinsenveien next to Løren. Shame about the open backyard towards Lørenveien though.

Sørkedalsveien 8, also known as RIFT, at Majorstua. Expected completion is by this summer but the construction pictures were taken in January so I assume they are quite outdated by now. I have absolutely no idea what's going on with that golden door.
