it is really nice project with interesting buildings, where every single building is completely different, BUT :-) I think that for Oslo is it too massive project, maybe if it was not so high it would better suit to skyline...

If it was lower then it wouldn't be any skyline to suit. A few higher towers will soon pot up behind them too ...

A 67m tall building too tall for a city with 1 million people? I say its about time we go Urban instead or Suburban.

not building, but buildings btw. yes, but with agglomeration, the city itself is smaller - according to wiki:
Quote:
The population of the municipality of Oslo is 605,318 as of 1 Apr. 2011.
anyway, I consider this project nice, I just say it would better fit if it was a few floors lower. I know, that there are two highrises in small distance from the project and another one (or more) will grow there soon, but in spite of that... just my personal opinion

if I saw some pic from above I would be able better estimate the project size in comparison to the surrounding. At some pictures it looks just pretty lonely, that is one of the reasons why I prefer smaller version. But let me surprise I will visit it after they finish the construction

thank you Galro :-)

as I can see from the images, the whole area is not very developed yet. I am awaiting there a huge progress in the following years, so it might be some business district with "higher urban level" :-) in this point of view are these buildings expected in this area :-)

Well the area itself, where the new buildings are, isn't very developed yet, correct. But it isn't more than a few meters from the train central station, which is also connected to the Oslo subway, and maybe almost 200 meters (or less) from the "Railway square" which in many ways can be called the most urban square in Norway. Maybe I misinterpret you, but it sort of sounds like you're saying it's a very unurban and little built area, which is not correct.

At least not as little as around 50 to 100 meters from the new buildings.

My first impressions of Sørenga:









Looking good

I wasnt quite sure what to make of the main avenue though. It is not level at the moment, making the space that is accesible look cramped. I was expecting Sørenga to be flat.

Thought I'd share some of the photos of the development that we've seen over the last couple of months. Photos by marshol:
