you know.. in a way i'd like this in bjørvika instead.. because most likely this thing will be all on it's own when it comes to highrises for eons in the nydalen area XD

Not really. This kind of thin tower looks better when it's not surrounded by fat towers - also makes the city appear larger if we manage to get a few of these around, first Tjuvholmen, Nydalen then hopefully Risløkka and Alnabru in the future.

Well i don't know, i just think it would be neat with a really slim, so called pencil tower like this in Bjørvika too, because it really is all fat boxes there. Plaza is fat, Postgirobygget is fat, the entire barcode row, apart from 1 or 2 are fat.
While we're on to thin towers though, what's the news on whatsitname.. uh, Alcarel tower or something?

The problem with this tower is that it will hardly show in the skyline. Maybe we can see the top of it from Ekeberg, but that is pretty much it.

A question, if the construction starts this autumn, shouldn't the apartments be at sale now?

I don't think any of the highrise around Oslo S are too fat. Most however are too low to make a skyline. This highrise wouldn't change that.

No, that's not what they do for these small-scale high-end projects. If it were a 200 apartment block at Ensjø. yes, they won't risk that standing empty. But this is more like that infill in Parkveien, where they know it'll be sold eitherway, and that they'll get a higher price once people see it when it's finished. I guess sales start won't be until 2013.

I also think the developmenter (Avantor) think this will be a landmark for Nydalen and therefore sees further value in the buildings than just the pure profit they get from the sales of the apartments.

How Logo Towers plot looked like earlier today. Not fenced off, or anything else for that matters. Disappointing.

Thanks for checking out the plot. With completion in early 2013, they better start acting soon. There are some prep work to be done before the actual construction start.

I sent a mail to ask when they would start building. This is the answer I got:

Hei
Vi fikk rammetillatelse på bygget i juni i år, og starter forberedelser til markedsføring, salg og bygging nå i høst. Når den faktiske byggingen starter er avhengig av flere forhold og vil tidligst bli våren 2012.

Not the biggest news, I know, but here is another small render where you can see the building in relations to the other surrounding ones.

Has anyone seen any ads for apartments in the buildings or is there any activity at the plot now?

Still a parking lot. Checked this Monday. You should also be able to see when they apply for an "igangsettingstillatelse" on this site: http://web102881.pbe.oslo.kommune.no...seno=201103726

Okay. Thanks for the information. I sent a mail to Avantor, and the building is apparently on hold.
