In my town Kopavogur which is situated in the Reykjavik metropolitan area there are now plants to build a indoor football hall, hotel, a highscool and more in a project which is being aimed at future Icelandic footballers. Its the Icelandic football academy who plays a big part in this project and Eidur Gudjohnsen the Chelsea striker has a big part in this.

Here you can get a glimpse of the project in a slideshow.

I couldn't open it either. If you can show some pics I'd much appreciate it. :) I find Icelandic projects very modern and good-looking virtually without exeptions.

Works fine with me, but it took quite some time to load. As I only have PowerPont Viewer I don't know how to rip off the pictures, but here's a pic from http://www.kopavogur.is/frontpage.asp?cat_id=1:



Nice project. If I understood it correctly that tall building will be 9 stories high, but compared to the rest of the area it looks pretty high ;)

Actually it's 12 according to the pic. If the lines, however, don't count as window patterns then it may be just nine.

Oh yeah! It is 12! The text in the slideshow said something about 9 stories for that part, I just didn't notice the part that stated that these 9 stories are the stories 4-12, sorry. :bash: It's diffiucult trying to understand this language.

Kópavogur has grown alot over the past 20 years and it continues to grow. As the population is nearing 40.000 people many interesting projects are in the pipeline. Kópavogur is a part of the Reykjavik metropolitan area.

The Glaðheimar project. A development project where the official zoning plan is being revised; putting more housing/apartments. The planned 32 storey tower, will be lower in the revised plan - with a total of 25 storeys.

Elsewhere in Kópavogur, the proposed downtown Hamraborg plan is getting typical mixed NIMBY reviews. Some raw early stage illustrations:

That's a nice looking tower,love the skybridges! :)

Such heavy greenery on balconies is real optimism though,lol. I wish architects would stop doing that.
