Not a bad looking tower and the architect has a nice portfolio. What about the surroundings? It doesn't seem to fit well.

It will, this is in a brand new business district which will be redeveloped in the next 20 years, today its mostly just industrial and business companies in cheap temporary buildings which was built there in the 70s and 80s. A 110m building is proposed right by, and a 18 floor hotel will come up right next to WTC and Føniks.

Amazing! No other non-capital cities in Scandinavia has such a massive project - sure Arhus in Denmark got the 140 m Lighthouse-project and Malmo the 180 m. TT-scraper - but this might actually develop to a quite nice cluster if more projects appears.

Just be happy you don't have a 85 m. limit like in Orestad because of a damn airport

They are maybe a bit optimistic with the timeframe, but this is great news!

Proposals have been put forward for a new highrise for Stavanger in Norway. Named the World Trade Centre, something the world apparently needs many of.

The design comes from the drawing board of Brandsberg-Dahls Architects and if given approval will stand at an approximate height of 130 metres and putting it on the way to being the tallest high-rise in Norway.

Located in a brand new Central Business District, if given the go ahead the project will be one of the first few towers to begin a programme of development expected to take around twenty years to complete.

The project consists of a 34-storey tower and a smaller tower connected by a lazed sky bridge. The towers sport a very prismatic look and will be constructed from steel with fully glazed facades giving them a sharp modern look suited to any up and coming business district.

The lower structure stands on a columned base which will provide a covered over plaza area at the base of the project. In the smaller structure a large auditorium and office space.

The main tower will house mainly offices with several floors given over to a conference centre, a restaurant and a café for workers and visitors to the tower.

Quite slim at the base as the tower rises it begins to jut outwards giving its middle a rather rotund look before tapering back inwards as it reaches its peak, thankfully it seems the spire is quickly going out of fashion and no one decided to top this tower off with one.

It is hoped that permission could be granted by mid 2009, construction beginning as soon as 2010 and the towers could be open for business by as early as 2013.

Wow! Fantastic crystalline designs for the towers and that hotel looks really unique and beautiful. I hope the materials are top quality because they will make or break this project. Reeeeally nice.

This also looks very nice. How come smaller Norwegian cities get such nice projects, while on the other hand there's nothing interesting going on in Oslo. Or am I wrong?

There's one tower in the same height as this one proposed for Oslo aswell But Oslos business area is located right smack in the middle of the city, while Stavanger has a large field in the suburb, so naturally it's easier to get tall buildings passed out there;D

A bischen (or whatever). Oslo is a powerhouse of inner city scrapers, Copenhagen a powerhouse of more spread skyscrapers (but the amount is quite large) and Stockholm is the city of many many general propsals.

The later two sadly got a huge Nimby community, which most of the time prevent big-scale projects in our capitals. That's why you're seeing 190 m. Turning Turso in Malmo (Sweden), 150 m. Svanen in Gävle (Sweden), 142 m. Lighthouse in Arhus (Denmark) and WTC in Stavanger.

Interesting. What is that rail passing by the building, train or tram?

It is quite a high jump to 115 and 130 meters, even so that I would consider the impact thereof, being a skyscraperfan. I am inclined to think there will be some nimby's to accomodate first to make this possible, or has that all been passed already with the planning of the CBD?

Anyhow, if you are going to do something, it should be done in the best possible way. And this looks really good so far. A lot of open space, no compromising or saving on anything. It complements the Föniks building well (if that is the one at the other side of the rail?), and they will go well with each other, if it is built.

And yes, it is understandable that it is harder to get these projects approved in historical city centers.

It's planned tramline... Føniks got approved without much discussion, so it's looking good for this one aswell. There's not a skycraperplan for Forus, just many proposals being in the same intersection for some perculiar reason
