This video from the City of Oslo shows what the Bjørvika development will look like in the future. It’s in Norwegian, but here is a short recap:
The tour begins on the hill top Ekeberg park, overlooking Bjørvika and the city center. From here there will be a cableway to the new district in the future.
Much of the tour in the clip is focused on future parks and urban spaces, an effort from the city to calm fears that the area will be dominated by big buildings blocking the views.
Below you can see a photo of what Bjørvika looks like today.
Bjørvika today, a dismal old port facility ready for a total makeover.
