Continued strong population growth in Oslo and the Greater Oslo area in combination with the decision to develop a new metro line between Majorstua and Fornebu led to the idea of Fjordcity west. Fjordcity west consists of three areas in Oslo and Bærum municipalities; Skøyen, Vækerø and Lysaker. Currently only Skøyen is under development, the other two awaiting decissions related to E18, a new bus terminal at Lysaker, and other regional priorities.

In the same fashion of Bjørvika, Filipstad and other emerging areas in Oslo, the city wants an area program to coordinate public and private interests in an already densely built up area. The Skøyen area program was on hearing this fall, and is expected to be sent to Oslo city council early 2018. It draws out a future Skøyen with high density, including multiple high-rises of 16+ floors including residential towers.


Map showing total area within the area plan:




Total squaremeters will amount to 1,600,100 sqm, up from about 757,200 today, an increase of 842,900 or almost two Filipstad(!). Out of the newly regulated area, about two thirds will be residential.


Skøyen main square, railroad station with connections to tram and metro:



Sjølyst and the new seafront:



Hoff park:



Compared to the current Fjordcity, Skøyen is complex. There are a lot more stakeholders, and the area is already built up including quite a few industrial age heritage buildings. The plan has been protested by antiquarian authorities, as well as the national road authority. Both heights, E18-tunnel and time frame may change drasticly.

Everyone, please feel free to post Skøyen-related news from other threads into this one!

Dang! That's (Norway) tall! Is there in any sense hoping for this, without a floor cut?
Probably not, as the aforementioned Skøyen masterplan have 12 to 16 floors has the proposed upper limit of that plot while the proposal above looks to have 22 floors. We likely see something dense here, but not quite as high as that.

^^You could get something like Barcode, where the max height was set based on 16 office floors, or 67 m. That allowed for Lund Hagem kvartalet with 20 floors, just 2 floors lower than that render.


Galro, that's an old map. Think this is the newest one:

^^The area put away for roads in that render literally made me think it was made by some carist lobby group.
Of course, getting a e18 solution that Vegvesenet will accept, and further getting financing for it will take time. But I think the end result will be worth it and there's a lot of areas in Skøyen that can be developed in the mean time.
