Partial city plan for Hernesaari

The City Council has approved a partial city plan – a strategic long-term land use plan – for the Hernesaari waterfront area and surrounding sea areas south of Matalasalmenkuja. The new plan enables the necessary town planning to assign housing, jobs, harbour operations and parks to Hernesaari. The plan includes one new quay for cruise ships in addition to the current two quays. Plans for the marina include operations related to boat maintenance and storage as well as a guest marina.

Plans for the eastern shore of Hernesaari include a waterfront park serving as an extension to the Merisatama and Eiranranta waterfront areas. The new waterfront park would include physical fitness services and a centre for water sports. The goal is to develop the area into a maritime concentration of travel and leisure services in the Helsinki inner city. New and original urban housing solutions are sought for the area.

The current land area covered by the partial city plan is about 33 hectares.
