Tollbugata 8 was also being renovated there. This building dates from 1898 and was drawn by architect O.B.T. Johnsen. A before picture can be seen here.






Further up the same street you have the development known as Sentralen which was actually completed last year. It is re-development of two neighboring 19th century. The lower, more monumental looking building is the old headquarters of Christiania (later Oslo) Sparebank and was built in 1899 with Henrik Nissen as the architect. The five floor building was completed in 1898 and had Ivar coc*k ( the smear filter kicks in if I write it out in one word) as the architect. It was all re-developed into housing a restaurant, concert and event facilities, and open offices spaces to create a meeting points for "designers, entrepreneurs and a innovative minds" and whats not. A small before picture can be seen here.

They have started the re-development works of the two piers in front the city hall (and also in front of the new national museum). The new piers will be partly be clad in wood and cobblestones. A part of it will also be constructed in glass that make it possible to see sea below.





An illustrations that was put up there:

Looks like you will almost get your wish, as the plan now apparently includes a highrise of 98,5m.

I can't be as active in the forum as I'd like, so others - now first you Galro - are more than welcome to share the thread.

I can probably contribute some but be advised that I only have my crappy phone to take pictures with right now, so it won't be best quality (which is also evident my posts in this thread).
