In that year, Oslo’s Økern Portal building will be complete. This 81,000-square-meter business building will include office space, a hotel, a restaurant and cultural experiences. The property is being built in partnership with the real estate owner Oslo Pensjonsforsikring AS and Norlandia Hotel Group.

The Radisson Red Økern Oslo will have 224 rooms and suites, several meeting rooms, a restaurant and a rooftop bar.

The hotel is being built with the aim of achieving BREAAM-Nor certification. BREEAM is a third-party sustainability assessment method, which only a handful of all Norwegian hotels have achieved, including the Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel, Stavanger in Norway.

The hotel will be located centrally at Økern, within walking distance of the metro, airport express bus and Ring 3. 

The Radisson Red Økern Oslo will be operated by Radisson Hospitality under an International Franchise Agreement.
