A future City Centre in Oslo

City centre –

Økern Centre is situated in the heart of Hovinbyen, one of Oslo`s newest and most ambitious city developing areas. Hovinbyen has a potential growth of 30-40,000 new residents and will accommodate a total of 100.000 people in addition to its 2,5 million m2 area for industry and trade.

Økern Centre will be the central hub of Hovinbyen and will form and change Oslo in accordance with the growth strategies of Oslo Municipality;  Oslo towards 2030 – ”Smart, safe and green” and Oslo towards 2040 – ”Our City, Our Future”

From 2022 Steen & Strøm and Storebrand will create an urban, sustainable and innovative 163,000 m2 city centre including an indoor swimming arena, a cinema, housing facilities, cultural scenes, offices, hotels and a leading commercial centre.

Our aim is to create a new pulsating city centre for its local residents offering a vibrant environment both day and night with commerce, offices, hotels, cinemas, indoor swimming and other cultural offers. It will be a part of the city centre that contains all functions, a place where it is good to live and where people will thrive.  We will now put Økern centre on the map with an exciting architecture and being an area rich on cultural activities.”,
