This 2,200 sqm site is centrally located near the subway and Furuset centre, a transportation hub and typical suburban area of Oslo. The site, currently used as a car park, is mainly planned for housing new development is situated in the Grorud valley, which benefits from a governmental and municipal joint effort to tackle the environmental challenges alongside the social challenges faced by the local population
Furuset is a very multicultural neighborhood (with 140 nationalities represented). The team bidders will have to address interesting challenges of social integration for the redevelopment of this site.
The Grorud Valley Action Program (a government and municipal joint effort) was established to tackle the physical, environmental, social and educational challenges faced by the population.
Benefiting from this dynamic, Furuset has seen significant improvements and upgrades of public space, such as verdensparken- a park with a parkour area, a reopened stream, better lightings, playground equipment and art in public space.
The last couple of years, private housing companies have started upgrading their buildings after many years of poor maintenance. After many years without any new construction, several heavier real estate developers have positioned themselves for property development in the area.
