Jätkäsaari, city life by the open sea

Overlooking the beautiful open sea, the modern precinct of Jätkäsaari is currently under construction on a southern peninsula recently vacated by a cargo port – only minutes away from the centre of Helsinki.

In Jätkäsaari, people will live and work in an urban environment in which they will enjoy easy access to a wide selection of services, as well as effective public transport and convenient bicycle routes. Whether walking along the shoreline and enjoying the panorama of the open sea, or strolling through the large parkland that winds through the area, residents will have ample space to relax and enjoy their surrounds.
