ONE OF OSLO'S MOST IMPORTANT CITY DEVELOPMENT AREAS.

Økern aim to be a new sustainable urban centre in Oslo

Økern is naturally situated to become a substantial urban centre in Oslo, outside the main city centre. Økern is designed to be the very hub of Hovinbyen district, where 12,000 dwellings are being established in close connection to Økern’s public transport junction.

Økern city centre will link the district of Groruddalen to Oslo city.  The development project will be enriching for Oslo and Hovinbyen and contain all the best functions of a well-organised city centre:

  • Smart and urban housing
  • Innovative and important workplaces 
  • Urban area for leisure and experiences
  • Shopping mall and active pedestrian areas
  • Public transport hub and Municipal centre

Økern Centre

A genuine, rewarding and sustainable city

Økern Centre will be a positive and vital catalyst for the surrounding area, and for nearby development projects. Commerce, trade and the leisure industry on the spot will contribute vitality and increased value to the whole city.  Residential living at Økern with people in the streets generates warmth, plurality and safety for the city structure and environment.

Økern, as a natural hub, is a strategically important area of investment for the whole north eastern part of Oslo. With such substantial assets linked to the commercial centre and the wider city surrounding it, we are creating a business hub with the potential for enhanced commercial power and drive for the entire development of Hovinbyen district.
