Possible highrise on top of Helsfyr metro station and bus terminal. It is part of the scheme of re-developing the station to make it ready for a new main metro tunnel that will go below it and the new tram line which will go past it. It is still early in the planning so this only represent possible volumes.

Marstrandagata at Rodeløkka. The location does not look anything like renderings suggest though.

I guess with better facade materials than that rudimentary render suggests, it could kinda work. Otherwise, it looks like a plastic box.

Something called "Promenaden - the fashion district" was under development when I walked past Nedre Slottsgate today. It will apparently be "International fashion brands, concept stores, restaurants and cafes" according to its webpage. It's may sound cheesy but the project also includes the restoration of the first floor of this Ove Ekman-designed commercial building from 1899. A before picture can be found here.

The rift thing at Majorstua. It' quite close to completed now ... The golden entrance looks so awkward.

A fully wooden housing block to be built at Manglerud. It is claimed to be designed as a environment friendly development. This apparently means that the electricity to the inhabitants electric cars and bicycles will be provided by a roof-mounted solar cell, it will have a roof garden to grow vegetables in and it will have its own bicycle repair shop.

Harbitzalléen 2A at Skøyen. It will be built on top of one of the entrances to the new Skøyen metro station (part of the Fornebu line project).

I was against building the governmental quarter in the city core, but still wanted to be supportive of the official decision - given they would choose the most exciting proposal.

In my private (and very lay) ranking of all the 7 original proposals, I put these two right in the middle. That shows that one still chooses the "safe and boring" for Oslo, if Oslo itself wants that or not.

Well, I pose the question: Does Oslo itself want its small city core eaten up by the present and future growth needs of the governmental functions?

To that, anti-Oslo mentalities in rural Norway would likely say Oslo has no say as long as it reaps the benefits of being the capital.

However, it is in the nations and in the governments interest alike to locate the governmental functions so that (a) even future growth is warranted, (b) a roomy, civic/commercial city core in the nations common capital is allowed - and (c) security needs for the government and the urban populace are optimally met.

The labour decision to retain the governmental quarter where it is meets none of those requirements. There is no good solution to the dilemma, a malfunctioning plan now seems sealed.
