 Grünerløkka

Grünerløkka became part of the city of Oslo (then Christiania) in 1858. Grünerløkka is a traditional working class district, but from the late 20th century a gentrification process has taken place in the area. Although it is located in the East End, it has a relatively high price level today compared to other East End areas.

During the 19th century, Grünerløkka became a working-class area. Several factories were placed here, because of the advantages of being located close to the Akerselva river. Thorvald Meyer bought parts of the Grünerløkka area in 1861. He built the main street of Grünerløkka, now named for him Thorvald Meyers gate.
