"We are very proud and pleased that OBOS has once again demonstrated their confidence in us by awarding us this contract to undertake another great housing project in Ensjø. Oslo needs more new good homes, and once everything has been completed Ensjøbyen will have approx. 7,000 homes of this type. We are very grateful for this contract and look forward to starting construction work," says Anders W. Haugen, Director of Veidekke Bygg Oslo.

"We are very pleased to have an experienced housing contractor like Veidekke to undertake the Lumanders Hage project. Interest in the project and sales have far exceeded our expectations. We are now looking forward to starting construction work and handing over beautiful new homes in due course to new residents in Ensjø," says Jørgen Stavrum, Project Director at OBOS Nye Hjem AS.

The 216 apartments are divided into five 4-6 storey buildings with basements. Each apartment will have a private balcony or patio and there will be two large shared roof terraces. There will be a large open courtyard between the buildings along with a shared garden and playgrounds. In addition, home buyers will be able to enjoy large green areas, shops, cafes, schools and kindergartens, and it is located just three stops from Oslo S on the Oslo Metro.

Facilities will be provided for car sharing schemes and for charging electric cars and bikes, and parking facilities will also be available for cargo bikes. In addition, space has been set aside for a large community building with a kitchen and a separate rental section reserved for all housing association residents. The project will also include the construction of a kindergarten with four departments.

Construction work will commence in the middle of May and the first homes are scheduled to be ready for moving in during the summer of 2023. Read more about the project on OBOS’s website.
