Residential and business district on the waterfront

Kalasatama is going up on waterfront sites adjacent to the Helsinki inner city.

Owing to good transport connections, the area has thousands of jobs, and the redevelopment will bring many new offices and new commercial space to the area. The new residential blocks will offer versatile housing alternatives. The shoreline and canals will be lined by a long promenade. A former power plant in adjacent Suvilahti turned into a cultural centre adds to the charm of the area.

  • Construction time: 2009-2030s

  • Business premises: 400,000m2
  • Services: 45,000m2

The Kalasatama tale is the result of teamwork
