AF Gruppen has received an order for a new construction stage in Bispevika

Today AF Gruppen received an order from Oslo S Utvikling (OSU) for yet another construction stage in Bjørvika.

 The construction stage comprises area B6a, which is located due south of Dronninglunden (area B2), that AF Gruppen will also build. Both areas are north of Bispekilen, and with this order development work has started in the entire Bispevika North area.

The B6a area comprises a total of 9 different buildings with varied designs and attractive outdoor areas. The project includes 215 apartments overall, in addition to externally-oriented activities at street level and an extension of Oslo's harbour promenade on the surrounding quay. Danish architect firm Vandkunsten is designing the area, which will become a premium housing project by the shoreline of the Oslo fjord, and several apartments will have the sea right outside their windows.

AF Gruppen will start foundation work in September 2017, and completion is scheduled for the spring of 2020. The contract value is estimated at NOK 739 million, excluding VAT. 
Construction above ground level is subject to adequate advance sales of apartments. 

“The contract includes ambitions for cost-effective and innovative development, and we are looking forward to cooperating with OSU on realizing these ambitions,” says CEO of AF Gruppen, Morten Grongstad
