Bike-Friendly Office Buildings

The Oslo Solar Building is Designed for Bike Storage and Repairs

— April 1, 2016 — Eco
'Oslo Solar' is a new high-rise that will cater to the needs of cyclists and those who drive electric cars. With more consumers turning to eco-friendly forms of transport, there is a growing need for office buildings that accommodate the demands of a car-free commute. This office building demonstrates the future of modern high-rises with several spaces dedicated to cyclists.

Oslo Solar is an office tower that is set to be built in downtown Oslo, Norway. Unlike other office buildings, the high-rise will feature a ramp for cyclists to glide into the building, parking spaces for 500 bicycles, a bike-wash station and even a repair shop for maintenance. In addition, the building will include locker rooms so that cyclists can shower and change after their morning commute. For those who need to travel by car, the building will offer 10 charging stations for electric vehicles.

The new building not only caters to those who already bike to work, but it also encourages other professionals to consider trading in their car for something more eco-friendly.
Trend Themes
1. Eco-friendly Transportation - Creating office buildings with facilities and amenities for cyclists and electric vehicle users to encourage eco-friendly transportation.
2. Car-free Commute - Designing office buildings that accommodate the demands of a car-free commute, such as bike storage, repair shops, and charging stations for electric vehicles.
3. Multi-modal Transportation - Developing office buildings that offer a range of transportation options, including bike facilities and electric vehicle charging stations, to promote multi-modal transportation.
Industry Implications
1. Real Estate - Real estate developers can capitalize on the growing demand for bike-friendly office buildings by incorporating bike storage, repair shops, and other amenities for cyclists.
2. Transportation - Transportation companies can seize the opportunity to provide services that cater to the needs of cyclists and electric vehicle users, such as bike-sharing programs and charging infrastructure.
3. Green Technology - Green technology companies can innovate and develop eco-friendly solutions, such as advanced bike storage systems and efficient electric vehicle charging stations, to support the trend of bike-friendly office buildings.
