Fjordcity project

The largest waterfront project in Norway is Oslo's new Fjordcity project. Oslo is embarking on its most adventurous harbour renewallproject ever, as a string of waterfront properties in the heart of the city are put up for sale and rezoned for urban developement. Among the port capitals of Europe, Oslo stands alone in undertaking such a comprehensive revitalization of its downtown waterfront. The aim is to reconnect the city with the sea, providing residents and visitors alike with a unique and sustainable quality of life.

Fulfilling the vision of Oslo as the Fjord City will help meet the city's need for more housing, business, recreation and cultural space, as well as improving and concentrating Oslo's commercial port.

The total Fjord City area comprises 225 hectares, from Frognerstranda to the west to Ormsund in the southeast. Sale of these prime waterfront properties commenced in 2003 and will run through the end of the decade.



>> New Oslo Skyline

The Fjordcity project offer a new skyline to Oslo. In Bjĝrvika, behind the 2.8 billion NOK opera house there will be built a clauster of modern and spectacular high-rise building under the project name "Barcode". Construction of the first building has started, the Price Waterhouse Coopers headquarter. In the next years, 8-12 high-rise buildings from 40m to over 100m tall will be built here. They will contain offices and apartments as well as some retail.

The two tallest buildings will be two 26 story tall twins, which will be around 80m to 110m. Perhaps they will get company if the MAD Tower is been approved and built just behind this clauster of high-rise building.

Kvĉrnerbyen - 1800 apartments



( I have a photo-thread about the area: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=330737 )


Lĝrenbyen - 1600 apartments

^you think? cool! Are you going to post some photos from your trip?

Nice work collecting all of this, Christian! Thanks! I saw the construction site for the PWC-building 2 hours ago. Seems like much of the ground-work is already finished!

Here's another one under construction:
Helsfyr Atrium


14 floors, 38.000 sqm.

And
Sjĝlyststranda

470 apartments and an office-building. Originally the office-building should have been 20-25 floors, but it has been lowered after serious NIMBY-activism. At the site now, there's an add for a completely different-looking office-building, cool enough, but only 5-7 floors or so(haven't taken a good look at it). Most of the apartments are nearing completition.

A 20 story tall hotel has been proposed in Fornebu, the old airport of Oslo. Telenors Headquarter has been built here, and there is planns of building a 15 000 seat stadium on Fornebu. That makes it ideal to built a 20 story tall signal tower there. The cost is estimated to 300million NOK, and if approved they expects the tower to be completed in 2008.
