Yes, its looking fabulous! Great additions to my favorite European city I like the fact that the variations in the facades keep each building looking very individual

I visited Oslo earlier this year. Really nice city were I felt at home. Many similarities with Amsterdam in terms of contemporary architecture.

1 and tallest apartment building in the last step, so 2 steps will therefore be coming out later in this latest step.

Why are the buildings in front of the Barcode so ugly? They look like buildings from the communistic era. Boring with no design.

This is such an amazing area that has been created for Oslo, I visited in 2010 and fell in love with the city straight away, Ive been following the developments ever since. I love the diversity of design these buildings have

Oh, i didn't know. Do you think they will be as spectacular as the barcode buildings? I guess they won't be any higher than the volumes rendered? And will they be both offices and apartments?

The quarter has no official name yet. B13 is the name in the regulation plan. We call it "Lund Hagem-kvaratalet" locally, as it is the name of the architect.

Time for an update here as well, posting Icecheese's photos from earlier today:

The site of the mysterious Barcode X:


Imagening the future DEg:


The Bar's


And again


Traffic on the new Fv4:


Looking over to Sørenga. So amazing I had to move my tag for better view:


Once again DEg. Only 1 and a half year now:


Guess:


On my way down, looking over to ol' Oslo:



Seeing Isfjellet, as it hangs over Trelastgata. Nice detail:


The intersection of Nylandsveien and DEg. Notice Akerselva is visible!


Close-up Isfjellet


Not done towards KLP:


Only crack missing towards Visma:


Looking at the Barcode-passage. I wonder if the shopping route will ever have anything in it


The bike-racks:


This area is soooo good for photos!






MAD not as finished on the east side:


Crazy with the camera






What in the distance?


Yepp, it's Borgen. Also going to be a short-lived view:


I'm looking forward to seeing this area covered by some of the real photographers on this forum!


DNB B


Facade almost done, only apartment area left:




Close up of DNB B's controversial facade. The stone looks great by itself, but it is a large building:


Finally, I'm moving along:


Lund Hagem barely above ground:



Thanks for watching!

Oslo's developments (this one and Tjuvholmen - is that how you spell it?) are really inspirational. Normally such large scale developments are done on a really large scale, with huge skyscrapers. It's interesting to watch this unfold on a human scale with smaller buildings and a layout reflecting the rest of Oslo. Such a high quality is being used, it's really fantastic. I think these developments are the best in Europe.

Is there any news of the modernisation of Oslo Central Station?

(2 weeks later...)
Unfortuneatly, there still are no news here. The railroad company is uncertain on how they will make a new railtunnel through downtown, and a decission isn't expected until 2015.
