Veidekke to build 127 homes at Løren in Oslo

27.08.2015 - 08:08

Veidekke Entreprenør has signed a contract with Lørenvangen Utvikling AS, which is jointly owned by OBOS Nye Hjem and Veidekke Eiendom, to build the third and fourth stages of the Gartnerløkka development. The two stages comprise 127 homes and a parking cellar. The total sales value of the homes is NOK 491 million.

Sales have been very good at Gartnerløkka. This first two stages are almost sold out, and the first residents move in before the summer of 2016. When completed, Gartnerløkka will comprise a total of 244 homes in five blocks of flats built in four stages. The total sales value of the homes in the whole project is around NOK 1 billion.

The five blocks of flats will surround a large, sunny courtyard nearly 5,000 square metres in size, with bushes, trees and fruit trees. There is a broad selection of 2, 3, and 4 room flats, where the flats on the ground floor have their own private garden plot. Additionally, a day-care centre will be built on the ground and first floors of building four, where children living in Gartnerløkka will be given priority.

Veidekke is cooperating with the Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association on building homes with a good and healthy indoor climate. By making conscious choices and with well thought through solutions and materials, Veidekke is creating healthy homes.

The good sales rate at Gartnerløkka has caused Lørenvangen Utvikling to expedite planning of the next housing project at Løren comprising around 650 flats. The framework application for the project will in all likelihood be submitted in the autumn with sales starting this winter.
