That's exactly what's happening, financial institutions are gathering in this area already, and more are planning to move here. Traditionally CBD (lowrise) has been located in the west end of Oslo, now it's moving to the east with this development. Unfortunatly the locals are very afraid of the increased density and new towers are very controversial, even when sticking to existing scale, Barcode was just barely approved after many years of public debate.

It willl open in a few months time. Parts of the new system is already in use. The new tunnelsystem has to be connected to 2 existing tunnelsystems with intersections in both ends while trafic moves somewhat uninterupted since these are the main roads trough Oslo, that's why it's been taking some time.

On the one hand I think there might be to many "icon-buildings" crammed in to one place. On the other hand what a cool project and what an urban feeling it has. I just love it

Part of the larger Fjordcity-project in Oslo we find Operakvarteret, a highrise clauster in downtown Oslo right next to the
newly completed Oslo Opera House. Around 10 highrise buildings around 45m to 70m tall. This is the original model
which won the masterplan competition in 2003 under the name "Barcode". Its was made by Norwegian Dark Arkitekter
AS
which is also behind one of the single highrises in this complex. Barcode is on schedule to be completed in 2014. By
now, late 2008 the design for 7 highrises is ready or more or less ready, we're still waiting for 3-4 more highrise-designs
to be announced.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers (Com)

PricewaterhouseCoopers occupied its new headquarter, a 46m, or 12 floor tall high-rise building in Bjørvika in May 2007.
The agreement between PWC and the owner Oslo S Utvikling AS was signed on March 18th 2005, and was the first
high-rise building to be approved and built at the new high-rise complex in Bjørvika, next to Osle Opera House.
Construction of the tower started in january 2006 and was completed in May 2007. A-Lab designed the building which
has a main facade material of glass, with a outside skin of sun shading elements.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

KLP Bygget (U/C)

KLP Eiendom (a Norwegian real estate management company) has started the construction of their new office building
in Bjørvika. Their plot will consist of one building leading into two different towers, both been 64m tall. The eastern
tower contains offices, while the western tower will consist of 54 apartments from the 9th floor to the 18th floor, which
will be the top floor. Oslo-based architect S+J Arkitekter AS have designed the building which has an area of 37 800m2.

Ground was broken in 2007, and construction began in January 2008. The building is on schedule for completion in
summer of 2010.



::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Isfjellet (Approved)

A 67m / 16 floor tall proposed office building between KLP Bygget (U/C) and Visma Bygget (U/C). Its designed by the architect company
Snøhetta and is inspired by a breaking glacier, where its name "Isfjellet", meaning "The Glacier" comes from. Isfjellet will face Dronning Eufemias gate
and Oslo Opera House with 12 floors (51m). Towards north, or Oslo Central Station it will increase its height to 16 floors and 67m. The entire 16.950
m2 large building will room offices.

Details about the building | The two lowest storeys of the building will have shops and refreshment areas. From the 2nd floor to the 11th floor
there will be offices. The 12th floor to the 15th floor will hold a canteen and conference rooms with adjacent green roof terraces.

The building's design has developed from the point of intersection of the building's internal room design, the external limitation and the desire to
create a building that is sculptural in form. The building complies with the barcode principles, but in addition it introduces an intersection of surfaces
on the horizontal and vertical planes. The creation of interplay with the Station Common's landscape has been of great importance.

The sight corridor in the planning regulation limits the height of the buildings in a field that cuts across the roof toward Ekebergåsen. From the
Station Common across connection will be maintained which will also convey the difference in height between the Station Common and the
neighbouring building's street level.







::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Visma Bygget (U/C)

Visma, a Norwegian founded consulting business, has acquired this second building in the Barcode development for
relocation of their Oslo headquarters. The 67m tall building is structured as three ‘towers’, connected internally by large,
three-story atriums. The towers vary in heights and provide for a semi-sheltered roof terrace on top of the middle
tower. The building is located in the center of this new development, along a new major street and adjacent to a
pedestrian route connecting the areas behind the train lines, by a bridge, with the waterfront and former harbor area.

This unique location, in a new dense development, anchors the building at ground level with large public spaces and
creates a landmark with its 17 stories. It will attract both future employees and clients, encouraging a dynamic working
environment and culture, enabling Visma to deliver top services to their clients. The building is designed by Dark
Arkitekter AS
.

Construction is set to start in January 2009 with completion in 2011.



::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

MAD Bygget (Approved)

A 48m / 15 floor tall residential and retail building between Visma and DnB NOR. Few rendering are available, but its designed by Norwegian MAD Architects.



::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

DnB NOR Bygg C (Approved)

DnB Bygg C is the westernmost building of the three DnB buildings in the Barcode project. Its designed by Dark Arkitekter AS and will be 56m tall
with 15 floors. Shops and boutique will occupy its 1st floor, and a public restaurant with roof garden is planned on the top floor. The rest of the
building will be offices. The entire building can room 700 working places.



::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

DnB NOR Bygg A (U/C)

DnB Bygg A is the main building of the three DnB buildings in the Barcode project. Its designed by MVRDV and Dark Arkitekter AS and will be 67m tall
with 17 floors.

The project aims to create synergy and identity for the firm translating social and democratic culture into the design and making the space an
enviable working facility. MVRDV's building is conceived as a steel ‘rack’ which permits adaptation to the flexible nature of the organisation. The
steel rack is wrapped in a stone skin, which adopts Norwegian environmental standards. It appears as a rock, a strong shape within the
boundaries of the Barcode. The niches of this rock provide space for vegetation growth: the positioning of the pixels creates roof gardens or
outside areas for every floor.

Additional facilities include a panoramic 140 seat canteen on the top level, an executive lounge with a view over the fjord, a board room, in the
heart of the volume, DnB NOR’s trading room with 250 work stations, and the main entrance with a reception and access to the concourse. These
collective elements are connected by a staggered continuous internal route of terraces, encouraging informal meetings and communication between
employees and a series of wooden stairs and bridges allows travel between levels.





::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

DnB NOR Bygg B (Approved)

DnB Bygg A is the easternmost building of the three DnB buildings in the Barcode project. Its designed by Dark Arkitekter AS and will be 63m tall
with 16 floors.



::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Barcode B13 A (Approved)

The western building of the B13 block, which is the easternmost block in the Barcode project (Isfjellet, KLP Bygget, DnB NOR etc.). The building is 21
floor tall and is designed by Lund Hagem Arkitekter. Expecting construction start in 2010/2011, with completion in 2014.

No render.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Barcode B13 B (Approved)

The middle building of the B13 block, which is the easternmost block in the Barcode project (Isfjellet, KLP Bygget, DnB NOR etc.). The building is 16
floor tall and is designed by Lund Hagem Arkitekter. Expecting construction start in 2010/2011, with completion in 2014.



::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Barcode B13 D (Approved)

The western building of the B13 block, which is the easternmost block in the Barcode project (Isfjellet, KLP Bygget, DnB NOR etc.). The building is
16 floor tall and is designed by Lund Hagem Arkitekter. Expecting construction start in 2010/2011, with completion in 2014.
