Engagement in urban development projects is key to Linstow’s strategy. The company has achieved a position as a key player within urban development in major towns and cities in Norway and abroad.
As a leading property developer in the Baltic region, Linstow has valuable experience from work related to the preservation of cultural, architectural and environmental qualities, including through development redevelopment projects in Riga's old town. The company also has a lot of experience in Norway with the rebuilding and renovation of listed buildings.
Linstow’s portfolio in Oslo has included central and representative properties that require property development to be done in the optimal manner, accommodating the requirements of urban planning, and the technical, functional and aesthetic aspects.
Linstow played a key role in Bjørvika, which was Norway’s biggest urban development project in recent years. The development of Barcode has attracted international attention, and won several awards. Construction has now started in the area between Barcode and the fjord. The development of Bjørvika is an expression of modern urban culture and state-of-the-art building and construction focusing on eco-friendly solutions. Bjørvika represents one of Linstow’s biggest and most challenging engagements so far, and we exercise active ownership now through the development company Oslo S Utvikling AS (OSU). The project provides a unique opportunity to provide value for the city and for the owners. Linstow currently owns 50% of the company, with Entra ASA.
